Migration, the movement of people from place to place, was crucial to the development of early modern English society: towns could not grow or maintain their population without continued immigration; movement between villages and jobs was integral to the world economy. But the vision of an immobile population in pre-industrial England still predominates. This collection of essays, some reprinted, some newly commissioned, focuses historical attention on migration as an essential element in the growth of early modern society. The editors’ introduction analyses the social demographic patterns of migration, and provides a broad interpretation of its development and impact. This will be an invaluable collection for students of social and economic history, demography, historical geography and history.
