Provocative new account of the importance of knowledge to the economic transformation of western Europe during the Industrial Revolution.
In Praise of Ordinary People, Hardback (December 2013)

In these fascinating British and Dutch cases, we see how the study of this evolution imparts historical texture and enables us to understand early modernity with greater clarity.
