First Industrial Revolution by Phyllis Deane

Book Description

This book identifies the strategic changes in economic organisation, industrial structure and technological progress associated with the industrial revolution, which took place in Britain over the century 1750-1850 and which marked a watershed in world economic development - the beginnings of modern economic growth for developed countries and an example of spontaneous industrialisation for third world countries. The book assesses both starting point and achievement, analyses the substance of economic transformation and evaluates the role of government policy and institutional change in retarding or accelerating economic development. The second edition updates and expands the first by taking into account (and giving bibliographical references for) major topical knowledge and ideas. This work has proved a successful textbook for sixth form students as well as undergraduate students in faculties of economics, history, geography or social science generally. It is, however, sufficiently nontechnical to be intelligible to a general reader interested in putting problems of economic development into historical perspective.

Reviews

UK Kirkus Review » The modern world began with the industrial revolution and the industrial revolution began in Britain. Over the course of a century after about 1750 the whole basis of the economy was transformed. Manufacturing replaced agriculture as the principal source of wealth and employer of labour: the primary sector gave place to the secondary and the tertiary. At the same time, by 1850 more than half of the British population lived in a town for the first time in our history: the class structure and the social life which we still recognize came into being. In Deane's concise and authoritative account of this most decisive of moments in our history we have a work which remains as accessible to the general reader and as essential for students as it was when it first appeared in 1965.
