Many of the leading figures of the Industrial Revolution appear in these pages, with new and revealing insights into their achievements. Based on wide-ranging and original research, this book provides a major reinterpretation of the Industrial Revolution.
The Industrial Revolution in Great Britain is often depicted as a triumph of empiricism, of illiterate practical craftsmen without scientific training. This traditional view has been seriously challenged by the "fresh and important researches" of A.E. Musson and Eric Robinson, as Professor David S. Landes observed in the Cambridge Economic History of Europe.
