The Butcher, the Baker, the Candlestickmaker

The story of the British Isles through its census, 1801-2011. Conducted every decade, the national census presents a fascinating self-portrait and a vivid picture of a society experiencing unprecedented changes: from the Napoleonic wars to the age of the internet, through the agricultural and industrial revolutions, possession of the biggest empire on earth and the devastation of the 20th century's two world wars. Charting the history of the survey, from its controversial creation to the changing approaches recording data. All human life is here, from prime ministers to peasants and paupers, from Irish rebels to English patriots, from the last native speakers of Cornish to the first professional footballers, from communities of prostitutes to individuals called 'abecedarians' who made a living from teaching the alphabet.

Hardback, 340 pages.

Present for husband who has hardly put it down since Christmas. He has been a very keen and knowledgeable Family Historian for many years and this has filled in gaps in his experience. Greatly appreciated.
