This updated re-issue of the third edition has been able to take account of the enormous amount of research which has been published since the second enabling Peter Laslett to draw a much more detailed picture and reach fuller conclusions.
The World We Have Lost is a pioneering work in a new field of enquiry - the study of family and class, kinship and community in England after the Middle Ages and before the changes brought about by the Industrial Revolution.
The book explores:
*size and structure of families in pre-industrial England
*the number and position of servants in different households
*rates of migration
*ability to read and write
*the size and constituency of villages, cities and classes
*conditions of work
For all students of early modern history, this is a book that demands a place on their reading list.
