Editorial Reviews

Review

"In this impressive new interpretation of France's unique path to industrialization, Jeff Horn places politics -- both big and small -- at the heart of economic change. By highlighting labor relations and state policy, he offers a compelling and refreshing argument for the long-term economic significance of the French Revolution and remaps the route toward industrial change."--Suzanne Desan, University of Wisconsin-Madison



"Ambitious and pugnacious... not without relevance to present debates." Robert Tombs Times Literary Supplement (TLS)



"Clearly written and drawing on an impressive range of sources, this is an account of importance not only for French history, but also for analyses of economic development." Jeremy Black History



"It is ambitious and broad ranging in its conceptualization; its argument is original, deeply-researched, and compelling." John Shovlin Journal of Modern History



" The Path Not Taken offers an original and fruitfully controversial interpretation of French industrialization during the eras of enlightenment and revolution. Amplifying on recent non-Anglocentric historiography of the Industrial Revolution, Horn presents a meticulous account of the political, social, and economic conditions that enabled French industrialization, as well as providing a useful comparative framework for assessing the industrial and economic relations between France and England." Mordechai Feingold , Professor of History, California Institute of Technology
