Editorial Reviews


"...no competitor text is, to my knowledge, as effective in taking the student from the basics of descriptive statistics through to the intricacies of multiple linear regression." Roger Middleton, University of Bristol

"Feinstein and Thomas present basic statistical techniques based primarily on intuitive understanding and application of concepts aimed at mathematically sophisticated readers. The material is presented with great clarity.... Recommended." Choice

"The best textbook on statistical methods ever written for a historical audience." J. Morgan Kousser, California Institute of Technology

Book Description

This is an authoritative guide to the use of quantitative methods, designed to be used as the basic text for taught graduate courses, and also suitable for upper-level students working on their own. Making History Count is written by two senior economic historians with very considerable teaching experience on both sides of the Atlantic. The text is clearly illustrated with numerous tables, graphs and diagrams, leading the student through the various key topics, and the whole is supported by five specific historical data-sets, available electronically in downloadable and manipulable form.

Format: Paperback
Irving Fisher(1892)said that "mathematics is the lantern by what was before dimly visable now looms up in firm, bold outlines". Unfortunatley, most texts on any area of mathematics fail to enlighten students but rather tend to confuse. Not this one however! Feinstein & Thomas present the subject of quantitative methods in a most readable and enjoyable way. I couldn't put the book down. As an introduction to concepts and techniques it works extremely well with clear and unencumbered presentation, plenty of exlplanation and straightforward diagrams.
F & S manage to make their subject interesting. That is the mark of a true teacher.
