Leaving Home in Western and Eastern Societies, 16th-20th centuries


Frans van Poppel, Michel Oris and James Lee

«The great strength of the work is the rigorous methodology adopted by all of the contributors, with exemplary discussion of the sources and methods used, as well as the findings. The researchers make full use of qualitative as well as quantitative sources, drawing in some cases from autobiographies, diaries, and oral testimony, as well as from such material as census registers, civil registration documents, and notarial archives.» (Colin Heywood, The Economic History Review)
