W.G. Hoskins was a Devon man and one of England's foremost economic and social historians. He pioneered the study of landscape history and initiated the modern approach to local history. His seminal work is universally regarded as a major masterpiece of local history, both in its research and its writing. Throughout the half century since its first appearance it has been reprinted many times, has been held up as a model throughout Britain, and has always remained the unchallenged, essential, authoritative history of Devon. This new, revised edition, with an up-to-date introduction, a new bibliography, and the most recent population and similar statistical figures, reproduces the author's classic text in full, including the Gazetteer atmore than 200pages a book in itself, describing every place, hamlet to city, in the county and his superb collection of contemporary photographs. The book is packed with detailed information, as remarkable in its high quality as its huge quantity. This new edition will be warmly welcomed by all who know and love Devon, England's most popular county."
