For more than 160 years "The Economist" has appealed to the world's business leaders and the influential, for its economic and political analysis -- vs. daily "news." Now, thanks to an exclusive partnership between The Economist Intelligence Unit and Gale, every page from the complete backfile of the paper is available for use by scholars and researchers in an easy-to-use digital format, The Economist Historical Archive, 1843-2007. This weekly newspaper - now in magazine format - is an essential accompaniment to The Times Digital Archive and The Financial Times Historical Archive (also available from Gale) for its weekly overview of national and international affairs.
Researchers will gain access to insightful appraisal and commentaries, readily accessible through topical searches:
With a selection of fully searchable and downloadable tables, The Economist Historical Archive, 1843-2007 lets users manipulate statistical tables and financial and economic data as part of their research projects - many charts and tables are downloadable as a spreadsheet. Full-text search capabilities include all covers, articles and advertisements.
"This is an excellent archive and Cengage is really demonstrating its skills in digitisation."
