Summary
"This new Seminar Study is the first of two companion volumes to tackle the Industrial Revolution in Britain. This, the first volume to be published, will look at economic change between 1750 and 1850 while the second, to follow shortly, will deal with social change in the same period." "The purpose of the book is to introduce readers to the significance and scale of the economic changes in Britain, while taking account of the older practices that persisted alongside the new. As far as it is possible within the confines of a short book. Professor Morgan highlights the differences between the process of industrialisation in England and Wales on the one hand and Scotland on the other."--Jacket
