Capitalism and the historians by Friedrich A. von Hayek( Book )

44 editions published between 1954 and 1984 in English and Italian and held by 310 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The views generally held about the rise of the factory system in Britain derive from highly distorted accounts of the social consequences of that system--so say the distinguished economic historians whose papers make up this book. The authors offer documentary evidence to support their conclusion that under capitalism the workers, despite long hours and other hardships of factory life, were better off financially, had more opportunities and led a better life than had been the case before the Industrial Revolution

This classic volume, first published in 1928, is a comprehensive introduction to all aspects of the Industrial Revolution.

An economic history of England by T. S Ashton( Book )

13 editions published between 1955 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

T.S. Ashton has sought less to cover the field of economic history in detail than to offer a commentary, with a stress on trends of development rather than on forms of organization or economic legislation. This book seeks to interpret the growth of population, agriculture, maufacture, trade and finance in eighteenth-century England. It throws light on economic fluctuations and on the changing conditions of the wage-earners. The approach is that of an economist and use is made of hitherto neglected statistics. But treatment and language are simple. The book is intended not only for the specialis

An economic history of England, 1870-1939 by William Ashworth( Book )

6 editions published between 1960 and 1982 in English and Undetermined and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a comprehensive account of a decisive epoch in England's economic development by a leading economic historian.'Works of economic history often get bogged dwon in figures - so many machines, so much unemployment, often, too, they are histories of technology, not of economic organization. Professor Ashworth goes to the opposite extreme in a most praiseworthy way: his book is actually good to read. Though there are tables of statistics (eleven of them), the book is an essay in interpretation, not an encyclopedia; it enriches our understanding rather than adding to our knowledge
