First Published in 1920, A Social and Industrial History of England 1815-1918 provides within as small a compass as possible, the historical background necessary for the study of modern industrial and social questions. An attempt has been made to show the interaction between political and economic development in the course of nineteenth century by correlating the growth of democratic institutions with the progress of industry. This book is an essential read for scholars and researchers of social history, industrial history, British history, and modern history in general.
