Editorial Reviews

Review

"Recommended." -Choice

"This is a large and important book ... It deserves to become not only a classic study of childhood, but also of the Industrial Revolution in Britain. As Humphries herself notes, it has been a long time coming, but for the reader it has been well worth the wait." -History Today

"Childhood and Child Labour in the British Industrial Revolution is richly innovative in its marrying of economic data with life stories. The voices of the children - stoical, matter of fact, and moving in their ordinariness - jump off the page. There is no other historical study of British labour during the industrial revolution that so vividly brings to life the world of the working-class child." -History Workshop Journal

Book Description

This 2010 book uses the autobiographies of working men of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries in order to shed new light on child labour, family life, careers and schooling during the British industrial revolution. It provides a unique account of working-class childhood in times and places untouched by conventional sources.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By L. Petroni on February 5, 2013
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book contains a lot of dry scientific studies and results, which tend to make it somewhat boring. If you can get through all of that there are many narrative type parts that help give a real flavor of the times. Also there are many case studies which examine parts of individual children's lives which can also be fascinating. So this book has something for everyone; for the social or behavioral scientist who can pour over the graphs and facts and sundry other boring details, or for the more casual reader who may be interested in finding out more about children in the workplace. Another plus is there is a detailed reference section which can help the reader branch out into specific interests. This book was helpful to me in my casual research.
