Prest offers some telling and nice observations. ... Many students will be grateful for the help he provides in finding ways through the murky shoals of long-standing debates about the industrial revolution. ... Throughout the book, he brings detachment and balance to the often difficult and fractured historiography of the period. ... The book is clearly structured and easy to use, and the writing is never less than clear. It also includes a chronology and, more importantly, a useful guide to further reading.' * Bob Harris, University of Dundee, in History * --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
