Beschreibung

In this revised edition, all chapters--including Joel 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.
