Land and Society in Edwardian Britainby Brian Short
Pub. Date: 10/01/2005
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
Lloyd George's 'New domesday' initiated in 1910 yields valuable insights into Edwardian Britain. This original volume, based on new research into primary sources, presents a standard source of reference to this diverse material. Part I deals with the administration of the survey; Part II with themes such as social structures, rural society, and comparisons with other historical records. Dr Short's study will be of special use not only to historical geographers, economists and anthropologists, but also to local historians and genealogists.
