The second volume in a major new initiative in the study of local history, From Family History to Community History explores population movements, spatial divisions and social structures in town and countryside, and gives pointers as to the meaning of community. Regional settings, the idea of place, and changes over time are also examined, with special attention being paid to the patterns and the processes of all forms of migration. These themes give rise to new research ideas in family and community history.
