Product description

An Economic and Social History of Britain, 1700 - 1850. The only general textbook to examine the social and political implications of the economics of British society over the period from 1700 to 1850, as population moved from agriculture and rural life to industry and towns. Unlike previous textbooks on this period, written either from a social and political standpoint, or about economics in the abstract, this book incorporates the work of social and political historians with revisionist work on British economic growth. It stresses the connections between the economy and debates over public policy, and examines the regional variations in agriculture and industry, with particular attention to the differences between England and Scotland. Martin Daunton gives a clear and balanced picture of the continuity and change in the early development of the world's first industrial nation. This book is intended for students and sixth-formers studying eighteenth- and nineteenth-century British history; good overview for teachers and lecturers. Used hardback in good condition with d/j in fair condition. Some wear and fading to the tops of the boards, front and back and to the top of the spine. Front board is warped somewhat, rear board to lesser degree. Minor grubbiness to edges of textblock. Internally clean with sound binding. D/j is worn along the top and the bottom with some water staining, mostly along the top. There are two sets of puncture marks on the front (a linear series about 5cm long) and rear (single hole), each associated with a water stain. Where water staining occurs on the d/j, it is also associated with staining from the boards (blue) in the inside of the d/j. There is a small (2.5 x 1.5 cm )residue on the rear of the d/j where a price tag has been removed. The d/j is grubby overall.
