Summary "This book offers the first glimpse at how ideas about taxation have travelled around the globe since the middle of the eighteenth century. It includes case studies from France in the mid-eighteenth century, the British Empire in the nineteenth century, and the 'American Empire' and the European Union in the late twentieth century, as well as exploring the International Monetary Fund. The book issues a word of caution to those policy-makers who look for straightforward lessons from abroad: transfers of ideas about taxation were cumbersome, as they had to take account of socio-economic structures, administrative cultures, and patterns of political legitimacy."--BOOK JACKET
Notes Based on a conference on "The transfer of ideas about taxation" held Sept. 16-18, 2005 in Cambridge, England
