Civilization and Capitalism, 15thth Century Series by Fernand BraudelThe statistics for China are based on official censuses, but are not on that account, of course, unquestionably valid. They are derived from fiscal sources, which means they are very likely to involve fraud and deception. Usher1 8 was right to think that the figures were, on the whole, too low; accordingly he increased them, with all the uncertainty an operation of this type involves. The latest historian1 9 to venture into this field of hypothetical calculations has done the same thing. The original figures reveal flagrant impossibilities, increases and decreases abnormally large even for the Chinese.

La historia de larga duración de Fernand Braudel
Fernand Braudel is associated with the influential Annales School La nouvelle histoire that advocated a major break from the dominant narrative paradigm of the early twentieth century embracing an approach to history integrating the social sciences with a problem-focused history. Braudel is uniformly praised as one of the most influential historians of the twentieth century, but a hard act to follow. Braudel immersed himself into masses of materials and emerged with plausible broad-brush stories to tell, teaching others how to replicate this approach is problematic.
