Thinking About Teaching Economic History to the Graduate Students...

Can anybody think of any (short) articles that do the job these do better, so that I can improve the readings I assign the graduate students for their third economic history class?

(Yes, I know that I cannot assign four--even short--articles for every hour I teach, but you have to start somewhere...)
