Summary

This edition of The Age of Manufactures provides an exciting overview of the 18th century British economy. Recent macro-economic history has discounted many of the achievements of the Industrial Revolution, but Maxine Berg digs beneath the macroeconomic estimates to dissect the characteristics and processes of industry in the 18th century. A male industrial revolution has been presented as the general experience, but other industries, notably in textiles and metal products, were primarily employers of women. This book gives these industries and their workforce due prominence. For this edition, additional chapters, graphics and statistical summaries as well as revision of other chapters have refreshed and enhanced this well-established and important contribution to British economic history.
