9780631165569: People Cities and Wealth: The Transformation of Traditional Society

Dissatisfied with existing explanations and mistrustful of the label "Industrial Revolution", the author integrates economic, social and demographic interpretations of major events in early modern Europe to propose new models of change. The essays in this book discuss the process of modernization, London's importance in changing English society and economy, the extraordinary rate of urban growth and agricultural change, population growth and family limitation in pre-industrial England, the fall of marital fertility in 19th-century France, and the role and influence of the classical economists.
