Beschreibung

This book reveals the relevance of the Victorian economy as a model for contemporary society by using quantitative methods to explain its true nature and performance. The essays, covering the period 1870-1914, are of three types: some establish accepted conclusions more firmly by deploying new evidence or methods; others deal with unwarrantedly neglected aspects of the subject; and the third category reassesses traditional views. The book also includes a very substantial introduction placing the contributions in the context of contemporary debates, brief introductions to each section containing elementary economic analysis of the following themes, and a glossary of technical terms to enhance accessibility.

Pressestimmen

"Quantitative economic history, or cliometrics, remains one of the most vibrant and productive fields of economics, and British cliometricians have been particularly prolific in recent years. These scholars have addressed issues vital to the understanding of British economic developments...and the work generally has been of first rate quality. The papers in this edited volume continue the tradition." William J. Hausman, The Southern Economic Journal "Overall, the book will probably be useful and memorable for its seminal essays. It is just in the natural way of things that the methodological treats cannot act as manuals for those of us who wish to try them out ourselves." Callum G. Brown, Victorian Studies
