1 Review
Originally published in 1988, this reference book provides the major economic and social statistical series for the British Isles from the twelfth century up until 1980-81. It is the successor of Abstract of British Historical Statistics and the Second Abstract of British Historical Statistics, which were compiled by the author in collaboration with Phyllis Deane and Hywel Jones respectively. The text presents the user of historical statistics with informed access to a wide range of economic data, without the labour of identifying sources or of transforming many different annual sources into a comparable time series. The statistics selected for presentation are arranged in sixteen chapters. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in British history and historical statistics.
