This title presents a two-part investigation on the impact that the great industrial transformation of eighteenth-century Britain had on both the domestic and international scenes. After considering the nature and significance of revolutions in industry, power and transport, it goes on to consider the formation of an industrial working class, the reform and self-help movements that arose from it, and the struggle between reformism, the vested interests of capital and the laissez-faire of government. It asks what the Industrial Revolution really was, and questions who benefited from it.
