Generally regarded as one of the world’s pre-eminent weekly newspapers, The Economist has presented global political, business, scientific, technological and cultural developments for more than 160 years.

The Economist Historical Archive delivers a complete searchable copy of every issue of The Economist from 1843 to 2009, with an additional year of content added every January.

New full-colour images, multiple search indexes, exportable financial tables and a gallery of front covers all combine to offer a multidisciplinary primary source for research covering the 19th and 20th centuries.

 

Women, war & society, 1914-1918

The First World War had a revolutionary and permanent impact on the personal, social and professional lives of all women. Their essential contribution to the war in Europe is fully documented in this definitive database. This fully searchable collection of primary source materials brought together in the Imperial War Museum, London, contains documents from more than 1200 organizations. It includes charity and international relief reports, pamphlets, photographs, press cuttings and more, along with interpretative essays from leading scholars.

Together they form an indispensable resource for the study of 20th-Century social, political, military and gender history.
