Peter Mathias's subject is the creation in late eighteenth-century England of the industrial system and thereby the present world. That unique conjuncture poses the sharpest questions about the nature of industrialization, social change and historical explanation, issues that are his principal scholarly concern. For many readers these collected studies will be as indispensable as the author's general introduction, The First Industrial Nation, whether for the richness of their material or the freedom and subtlety of his analysis. These fascinatingessays are divided into two groups: general themes, the uniqueness' in Europe of the industrial revolution, capital formation, taxation, the growth of skills, science and technical change, leisure and wages, diagnoses of poverty; and topics, the social structure, 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. This book was first published in 1979.
