British Industrial Revolution : An Economic Perspective - 2nd edition

British Industrial Revolution : An Economic Perspective (ISBN10: 081333389X; ISBN13: 9780813333892)
ISBN13: 978-0813333892
ISBN10: 081333389X

Summary: The Industrial Revolution remains a defining moment in the economic history of the modern world. But what kind and how much of a revolution was it? And what kind of "moment" could it have been? These are just some of the larger questions among the many that economic historians continue to debate. Addressing the various interpretations and assumptions that have been attached to the concept of the Industrial Revolution, Joel Mokyr and his four d
istinguished contributors present and defend their views on essential aspects of the Industrial Revolution. In this revised edition, all chapters-including Mokyr's extensive introductory survey and evaluation of research in this field-are updated to consider arguments and findings advanced since the volume's initial 1993 publication. Like its predecessor, the revised edition of The British Industrial Revolution is an essential book for economic historians and, indeed, for any historian of Great Britain in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.
