Michael Dintenfass provides a challenging account of Britain's economic performance since 1870. He combines a succinct, clearly-written survey of recent scholarly work in British economic and business history with an original interpretive alternative to the institutionalized accounts of Britain's relative decline. Dintenfass addresses both specifically economic questions and socio-historical questions to place Britain's economic history in its broadest context.


`… strongly recommended as an introduction to the various debates. It is clearly written, free of technical jargon and good value for money.' - Economic History Review

`This book was recommended `blind' to my students and they have given it a very positive reception. They are good judges.' - Alan Booth, Business History
