International Historical Statistics Europe 1750-1988
The European volume of this best selling series provides data from over two centuries for all principal areas of economic and social activity in both Eastern and Western Europe. Recent concern with economic growth has led not only to a vast increase in the quantity and quality of statistics collected and published, but also to an upsurge of interest in the statistics of the past. As attention has turned more and more to the study of the comparative development of different countries, so a need has been felt for a collection of historical statistics comparing different nations. This work meets the need as far as the European continent is concerned. Each section has a short introductory commentary, and extensive notes and footnotes. This unique compilation, now in its third edition and revised and updated to 1988, brings together in a single volume major statistical series which document the growth and development of modern Europe.
