Description : This 1967 volume was the result of a project which originated a decade before its publication, when scholars from eleven British universities met under the presidency of the late R. H. Tawney and decided to create a work of co-operative scholarship covering the entire social and economic history of rural England and Wales from the neolithic period to the twentieth century. This was the first of eight volumes to appear, and deals with such topics as the structure of farming regions, agricultural techniques, and estate management by the crown. Based as it is on studies that span the entire kingdom, a picture of Tudor and early Stuart England and Wales emerges which differs at many points from the conventions of textbooks. Full account has been taken not only of previous scholarship, but also the national archives, while the manuscript deposits in the various county record offices have been freely tapped.

Description : The period between the repeal of the Corn Laws and the Great War is crucial for an understanding of present-day rural and agricultural issues. The unifying theme of this volume is the changing role of the countryside in national life, and the impact upon it of the social and economic forces unleashed by industrialisation and the growth of towns. Science and technology held out the prospect of unprecedented advances in agricultural output and productivity but, by 1914, English agriculture had lost its 'headship among industries', and technical supremacy among nations. It now produced less than one-tenth of national income and employment, and less than half the nation's food. Only one-fifth of the population was classified as 'rural'; most traditional rural crafts had long since decayed; and the social and political position of the landowning classes had been seriously weakened.

Description : 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.

Description : The period between the repeal of the Corn Laws and the First World War is crucial to the understanding of contemporary rural issues. The unifying theme of this monumental 2000 volume is the changing role of architecture and the countryside in national life, and the impact of social and economic forces unleashed by industrialisation and the growth of towns. Although science and technology had promised unprecedented advances in agricultural productivity, English agriculture had by 1914 lost both its 'headship among industries' and its technical supremacy among nations. Agriculture now produced less than one tenth of national income and employment, and less than half the nation's food. Only one fifth of the population was classified 'rural'; most traditional rural crafts had long since decayed; and the influence of the landowning classes was declining. Beginning with a critical view of the 'Golden Age' and Great Depression, this book goes on to consider separate elements relating to the theme.
