View all copies of this ISBN edition:

This is an analysis of the figures for "world" history employed by successive generations of statistically-minded historians from the Victorians to the present day. The author has aimed to produce a work wider in scope and coverage than has previously been produced, and hence one by which miscalculations can be more easily seen. The author attempts to show the misuse of numbers and the fragility of the conclusions derived from them. The work is the product, primarily, of the collected resources of the Bodleian Library at Oxford, from which the connnection and inter-weaving of "data" can be discovered. Every individual is cross-referenced for easy identification so that the argument can be followed through step by step. by pupil and teacher and is designed to raise questions and encourage further work.
