About the Authors
  • The Industrial Revolution has been, and continues to be, the focus of massive historiographical as well as historical enquiry. This collection includes reappraisals by Phyllis Deane and by François Crouzet of their classic accounts of industrialization in Britain and in France, and more generally broaches the wider issue of "new approaches" that have been emerging for the understanding of the industrializing process in nations where it came somewhat later.

    • An examination in European and American national context of one of the most important phenomena of modern history
    • Includes updates on two classic accounts of the industrial revolution, by Phyllis Deane and François Crouzet
    • Covers western, eastern and southern Europe, and the USA, with references to the far east

    Reviews & endorsements

    '… enormously impressive … The book can be commended to all who profess a serious interest in industrialization. The admirable lucidity of most of the contributions makes it readily accessible to undergraduates and other non-specialist readers. As an introduction to the merits of comparative economic history, and of the benefits which can be obtained from well edited collaborative ventures, it is a model'. History
