Recenzii

'A new accessible text in this field is overdue...Hudson's book has the characteristic merits of her work: it is clear without over-simplyfying, and it locates quantitative techniques within a properly historical framework of understanding. I am sure it will find a significant market.'
'This book deserves to be read carefully and thoughtfully by all historians. The approach is sensible, in no way triumphalist, but it clearly demonstrates the need for, and value of, even a modest level of quantitative skill.'
'Balanced, critical where necessary and alive to the difficulties which its readers may experience.'
