Editorial Reviews


"Daunton has written a work of grand synthesis and sustained argument, which will be read and reread by professionals and students alike. He has drawn from a generation of revisionist studies to fashion a new and provocative account of the industrial revolution and its social context....A signal achievement not least because its author has rescued so many important findings from highly technical studies and made them part of a story told in lucid, attractive prose....Highest recommendation."--Choice

"Easily the best modern social and economic history of the transition to industrialism. A brilliant, comprehensive and judicious synthesis."--Harold Perkin, Northwestern University

"The virtue of Daunton's book is its particularity and wealth of detail...A quite intelligent and wide-ranging economic history of this period."--The Albion
