In the three fascinating volumes of which this is the first to appear in English, the author indisputably the greatest of living historians, offers nothing less than an economic and social history of the world from the Middle Ages to the Industrial Revolution. And what he offers is, like everything he writes, entirely new.This first volume is an evaluation of what was possible in the pre-industrial world of which the most important is the condition imposed by material life. Food and drink, dress and housing, demography and family structure, energy and technology, money and credit. Mono illustrations throughout.
