9780521356886: The Population History of England 1541-1871 (Cambridge Studies in Population, Economy and Society in Past Time)

This was the first paperback edition of a classic work of recent English historiography, first published in 1981. In analysing the population of a country over several centuries, the authors qualify, confirm or overturn traditional assumptions and marshal a mass of statistical material into a series of clear, lucid arguments about past patterns of demographic behaviour and their relationship to economic trends. The Population History of England presents basic demographic statistics - monthly totals of births, deaths and marriages - and uses them in conjunction with new methods of analysis to determine population size, gross production rates, expectation of life at birth, age structure and net migration totals. The results make it possible to construct a new model of the interplay of economic and demographic variables in England before and during the industrial picture of English population trends between 1541 and 1871 is a remarkable achievement and in a short preface, the authors consider the debate engendered by the book, the impact of which has been felt far beyond the traditional disciplinary confines of historical demography.

Review:

'The Population History of England is important, not only to English historians, but to students of population in other countries as well. As a result, the study of the economic history of all European countries before the late nineteenth century will never be quite the same again.' The Times Higher Education Supplement

'The book is a great achievement, which will stimulate controversy, research, and the teaching of demographic and economic history everywhere for years to come.' Journal of Economic History

Book Description:

In analysing the population of a country over several centuries, the authors qualify, confirm or overturn traditional assumptions and marshal a mass of statistical material into a series of clear, lucid arguments about past patterns of demographic behaviour and their relationship to economic trends.
