Curriculum vitae

He is the author of Revolution in Time, The Unbound Prometheus, The Wealth and Poverty of Nations, and Dynasties. Such works have received both praise for detailed retelling of economic history, as well as scorn on charges of blatant Eurocentrism, a charge he embraces explicitly, arguing that an explanation for an economic miracle that happened originally only in Europe must of necessity be a eurocentric analysis.

Landes earned a Ph.D. from Harvard University in 1953 and an A.B. from City College of New York in 1942.
