R. H. Tawney

a.k.a. Richard Henry Tawney

Author Code: ERHT

Born: Nov. 30, 1880 - Calcutta, India

Died: Jan. 16, 1962 - London, England

Educated at Rugby School and Balliol College, Oxford, Tawney graduated in 1903. He then worked in the University Settlement in London's East End before being employed at the Workers' Educational Association where he experienced the poverty and deprivation. He moved to Manchester in 1911 and when war broke out Tawney enlisted in the army with the 22nd Manchester Regiment. He was severely wounded at the Battle of the Somme in 1916 and was eventually evacuated to England. Following the war in 1918, Tawney was elected a fellow of Balliol, but the following year he moved to a readership in economic history at the London School of Economics (LSE). In 1920, he published the Acquisitive Society, a brilliant work that was an immediate success. He immersed himself in left-wing politics, took part in the 1926 general strike and continued his teaching and research throughout the decade at the LSE. Together with Sir William Ashley, he helped to found the Economic History Society in 1926. From 1931 to his retirement in 1949, he was professor of economic history at the LSE. He received numerous honorary doctorates during his career. Tawney became a specialist in the 16th and 17th centuries and his Religion and the Rise of Capitalism (1926) helped to make his reputation as an historian. In the early 1930s, he travelled to China and produced Land and Labour in China (1932), a pioneering work on the problems of that country and its attempt to enter the twentieth century. Tawney's other works include The Agrarian Problem in the Sixteenth Century (1912), The Assessment of Wages in England by the Justices of the Peace (1913), Equality (1931), The Rise of the Gentry: 1558-1640 (1941), The Attack, and Other Papers (1953), Business and Politics Under James I (1958) and Social History and Literature (1958).
