Pub. Date: 04/28/2004
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
This is a study of agricultural rent in England from c. 1690 to the First World War, concentrating on the mechanisms by which rent was paid by tenants to their landlords and building up a rent index which provides a definitive picture of the pattern of rent over the period. The book adds a critical dimension to our understanding of English agricultural history through the period of the so-called agricultural revolution, and as such will help us understand more fully the economic history of the period.
