• The digitization and harmonization of Leplaysian family monographs has begun

    April 28, 2016

    HHB announces that the digitization of the Leplaysian family monographs has now started, beginning with the HHB record #1: the monograph authored by Ubaldino Peruzzi - future ministry within the first Italian government -, describing a family of sharecroppers living in Bagno a Ripoli, near Florence.
    Pierre Guillaume Frédéric Le Play (1805-1882) was an engineer, whose notoriety is due to his interest for sociology and for his studies of living conditions all over the world. He developed a specific research method, consisting in a very detailed scheme for the collection of household level data. Basing on this successful scheme, he and his followers published 164 monographs, collected in his two main works: Les Ouvriers Européens and Les Ouvriers des Deux Mondes. Their import has now taken off, and they will be soon part of the HHB Database.

Work in progress Coming Soon
