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 : Volume VIII of the Agrarian History of England and Wales was first published in 1978, and provides a technical, social and economic history of rural England and Wales in the years 1914-39. This period included four years of war, during which there was a rapid rise in prices, the post-war deflation and the depression. The author assesses the effects of these political and economic conditions on farming and farm workers. She describes regional variations in patterns of farming and the changes in methods of production by which farmers tried to reduce costs and increase output. She also examines the extension of government control over farming and the introduction of the marketing boards, and discusses the development of agricultural technology. Above all, she describes considers the conditions of life for the diminishing numbers of farm workers.

Description : This 1988 volume deals with the agrarian history of England and Wales from the beginning of the reign of Edward the Confessor to the outbreak of the Black Death in 1348. It divides the counties into regions and deals with each under the headings of new settlements, agriculture and pastoralism (crops and stock), yield ratios and techniques (including field systems, crop nutrition and drainage). There are also sections on the Late Saxon period, Domesday England, wages and prices, vernacular architecture, and the life of the people. The volume as a whole offers a detailed description of trends, both economic and social, between 1042 and 1350 and of the complexities of an economy and society split into many and various sub-economies and sub-societies, all very different from one another but closely knit and interdependent.

Description : The third volume of The Agrarian History of England and Wales, dealing with the last century and a half of the middle ages, follows the general pattern of the second volume which described the generations of agricultural expansion between the time of Domesday and of the Black Death. The third volume, however, concerns itself with the new demographic and economic circumstances created in large measure by endemic plague, and how these circumstances influenced patterns of settlement in the countryside, farming practices and the structure of rural society, both at the level of landlords and in the villages. An attempt is made to distinguish the special influence of general circumstances in the different regions of late medieval England and Wales. The volume includes a study of the marketing of agricultural produce in the period 1200-1500, detailed analyses of the movements of prices and wages in the countryside, a review of peasant rebellions and discontent centered on the revolts of 1381, and a chapter devoted to rural building in England and Wales.
