Sample text

We have tried to use "England" where we mean England and "Britain" where Britain is meant. We have confined the word "England" to the nation before 1707 unless we mean only the land of the English. Nevertheless, we have frequently, if anachronistically, used "Britain"—as in the title of the book—to refer to the entire period 1607-1790. And custom allows us to use "England" where precision would have us write "England and Wales" (pace, Cymry). Perhaps our readers will accept this explanation in the place of otherwise cumbersome circumlocutions.

We cannot talk about it all at once, so we make what are for us some uncomfortable decisions. Thus a circle of relationships that found the colonists engaged in production for export, that resulted in certain levels of income and wealth, that provided for the acquisition of imported commodities, and that had to be paid for by production for export must be arbitrarily divided. We begin with what we believe are appropriate points of departure for an exploration of the early American economy. Chapter i considers the two interpretive frameworks—the staples approach and the frontier tradition—that organize the field and our book.

B. Todd (Oxford, 1976), II, 564. 6 Introduction are the explicit application of theory to the past and the testing of hypotheses through statistical analysis. So far, cliometrics has not penetrated very deeply into the history of early British America. Almost all the work in the field now completed and most of that currently under way is descriptive, aimed at measurement and narration, at getting the facts right, rather than at econometric analysis. In part, this is as it should be: careful, detailed empirical work demanding patient grubbing among reluctant documents is essential to good economic history, and an enormous amount of data on the colonies of British America awaits collecting and compiling.
