Economic history is a frontier discipline: its analytical tools are based on both historical and economic sciences. Precisely for this reason, the fact that a significant part of contemporary economic history is limited to taking as a reference only the contributions of economics and, in particular, of the more strictly quantitative economic analysis, constitutes a serious limitation of its interpretative capacity. On the contrary, it seems essential that economic history be open to receive all the methodological contributions that may come from the historical sciences and, in general, from the social sciences that also make use of the qualitative analysis of historical phenomena.
