Population and history by E. A Wrigley( Book )

73 editions published between 1969 and 1994 in 8 languages and held by 1,384 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sinds kort besteden demografen meer aandacht aan kleine eenheden of perioden, zoals het gezin, een gemeente, of de duur van een oorlog, en minder aan hele volken, landen of eeuwen. Zij hopen hiermee een beter begrip te krijgen van de vele ingewikkelde variaties in vruchtbaarheid en sterfte, die al te vaak beschouwd zijn als zelfbepalende absolute factoren met een ofwel zeer zwarte ofwel zeer witte betekenis voor de toekomst van de mens op een overbevolkte planeet. Dit boek beschrijft methoden en bevindingen bij het bestuderen van bevolkingen vóór, tijdens en na de demografische omwenteling van de industriële revolutie. De bronnen omvatten zowel een kleine parochie in het Engeland van Elisabeth I als de gebieden van industriële expansie in het Frankrijk en Duitsland van de negentiende eeuw, maar ook China en Brazilië; de bestudeerde variabele factoren omvatten zeer verschillende invloeden, zoals godsdienst, onderwijs, broodprijzen, stadsplanning, openbare gezondheid, sexuele technieken en ambities van ouders
The population history of England, 1541-1871 : a reconstruction by E. A Wrigley( Book )

52 editions published between 1973 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,066 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first paperback edition of a classic work of recent English historiography, first published in 1981. In analysing the population of a country over several centuries, the authors qualify, confirm or overturn traditional assumptions and marshal a mass of statistical material into a series of clear, lucid arguments about past patterns of demographic behaviour and their relationship to economic trends. The Population History of England presents basic demographic statistics - monthly totals of births, deaths and marriages - and uses them in conjunction with new methods of analysis to determine population size, gross production rates, expectation of life at birth, age structure and net migration totals. The results make it possible to construct a new model of the interplay of economic and demographic variables in England before and during the industrial picture of English population trends between 1541 and 1871 is a remarkable achievement and in a new, short preface, the authors consider the debate engendered by the book, the impact of which has been felt far beyond the traditional disciplinary confines of historical demography

Continuity, chance and change : the character of the industrial revolution in England by E. A Wrigley( Book )

45 editions published between 1988 and 2000 in 4 languages and held by 882 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Industrial Revolution brought into being a distinct world, a world of greater affluence, longevity and mobility, an urban rather than a rural world. But the great surge of economic growth was balanced against severe constraints on the opportunities for expansion, revealing an intriguing paradox. This book, published to considerable critical acclaim, explores the paradox and attempts to provide a distinct model' of the changes that comprised the industrial revolution

English population history from family reconstitution, 1580-1837 by E. A Wrigley( Book )

18 editions published between 1997 and 2005 in English and held by 405 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

English population history from family reconstitution 1580-1837 represents the culmination of work carried out at the Cambridge Group for the History of Population and Social Structure over the past quarter-century. This work demonstrates the value of the technique of family reconstitution as a means of obtaining accurate and detailed information about fertility, mortality, and nuptiality in the past. Indeed, more is now known about many aspects of English demography in the parish register period than about the post-1837 period when the Registrar-General collected and published information. Using data from 26 parishes, the authors show clearly that their results are representative not only of the demographic situation of the parishes from which the data were drawn, but also of the country as a whole

Energy and the English Industrial Revolution by E. A Wrigley( Book )

11 editions published in 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 352 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The industrial revolution transformed the productive power of societies. It did so by vastly increasing the individual productivity, thus delivering whole populations from poverty. In this new account by one of the world's acknowledged authorities the central issue is not simply how the revolution began but still more why it did not quickly end. The answer lay in the use of a new source of energy. Pre-industrial societies had access only to very limited energy supplies. As long as mechanical energy came principally from human or animal muscle and heat energy from wood, the maximum attainable level of productivity was bound to be low. Exploitation of a new source of energy in the form of coal provided an escape route from the constraints of an organic economy but also brought novel dangers. Since this happened first in England, its experience has a special fascination, though other countries rapidly followed suit"--

The early English censuses by Edward Anthony Wrigley( Book )

7 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

" ... The six censuses from 1801 to 1851 ... Professor Wrigley has now presented these data in a way that makes it possible to track back information in a manner compatible with the new reporting units of 1851 to 1801 and forwards using the traditional units from 1801 to 1851. All of these data are presented in tables that, if of a modest size, can be found in the printed pages of this volume or, if of a size too unwieldy to print in a conventional fashion, are made available in the accompanying CD"--Page [v]

The path to sustained growth : England's transition from an organic economy to an industrial revolution by E. A Wrigley( Book )

5 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Before the industrial revolution prolonged economic growth was unachievable. All economies were organic, dependent on plant photosynthesis to provide food, raw materials, and energy. This was true both of heat energy, derived from burning wood, and mechanical energy provided chiefly by human and animal muscle. The flow of energy from the sun captured by plant photosynthesis was the basis of all production and consumption. Britain began to escape the old restrictions by making increasing use of the vast stock of energy contained in coal measures, initially as a source of heat energy but eventually also of mechanical energy, thus making possible the industrial revolution. In this concise and accessible account of change between the reigns of Elizabeth I and Victoria, Wrigley describes how during this period Britain moved from the economic periphery of Europe to becoming briefly the world's leading economy, forging a path rapidly emulated by its competitors"--
