First published in 1979, The Transformation of England discusses the creation in late eighteenth century England of the industrial system and thereby the present world. Professor Mathias poses questions about the nature of industrialization, social change and historical explanation, issues that are his principal scholarly concern. This series of essays is divided into two groups. The first group of essays focuses upon general themes such as the 'uniqueness' in Europe of the industrial revolution, capital formation, taxation, the growth of skills, science and technical change, leisure and wages, and diagnoses of poverty. In the second section, Professor Mathias focuses on the social structure in the eighteenth century, considering the industrialization of brewing, coinage, agriculture and the drink industries, advances in public health and the armed forces, British and American public finance in the War of Independence, Dr Johnson and the business world

Agriculture and industrialization : from the eighteenth century to the present day by Peter Mathias( Book )

12 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The essays are tightly focused around a set of central themes. They emphasize how contexts of time and place have determined the relationship between agricultural change and economic growth. And they explore comparatively such issues as the problems of interpretation and methodology posed by the close interdependence between agriculture and social organization, the critical role of political intervention in agriculture change, as well as the technical difficulties involved in measuring changes in productivity and their wider impact on economic growth. As a result this volume offers a uniquely broad but coherent and critical assessment of current trends in the interpretation of agriculture's major but complex historical role in modern economic growth
