(p.319) Chapter Seven European Great Power Politics, 1790–1854
Economic Interdependence and War

Dale C. Copeland

Princeton University Press

This chapter explores the relative importance of economic interdependence and trade expectations on the policies of the European great powers from 1790 to the outbreak of the Crimean War in 1853–54. Since there are many cases where commerce had little or nothing to do with the outbreak of crisis or war, this chapter covers such cases briefly, highlighting their basic causes only to provide a complete survey of the origins of modern conflict and avoid charges of selection bias. Yet as the chapter shows, economic interdependence and trade expectations played a far more significant role in the dynamics of nineteenth-century geopolitics than has been previously recognized.

Keywords:   economic interdependence, trade expectations, European great powers, commerce, modern conflict, nineteenth-century geopolitics
