About the Authors
  • This 1989 volume continues the detailed account of the agrarian history of England and Wales, and with volumes IV and V provides a continuous comprehensive study for the whole of the period 1500 to 1850. The century covered in the present volume has always been considered one of vital importance in agrarian history as being that of the classical 'agricultural revolution'. The work provides a fresh analysis and assessment of this period, particularly in the estimation, in terms more precise than ever before, of the extent of the growth of agricultural output, as well as of the prices that prevailed in the agricultural markets and the nature of those markets. Other important discussions provide the essential background of technical changes in agriculture and the changes in the rural landscape, the character of landownership and landed estates and social developments in the countryside. The volume finishes with a large statistical appendix.
