On the Road Again with Arthur Young: English, Irish, and French Agriculture during the Industrial Revolution.

Abstract:
In their day, Arthur Young's tours of England, Ireland, and France represented a revolutionary approach to agricultural research. Here the authors avail of one part of the wealth of statistical data collected by Young--that on grain yields-to provide a comparative perspective on agricultural technique and progress in these countries circa 1770-1850. They show that, ironically, Young's carefully assembled data do not always support some of his best-remembered generalizations.
