A Brief History of How the Industrial Revolution Changed the World

Author(s): Thomas Crump


From the beginning of the eighteenth century to the high water mark of the Victorian era, the world was transformed by a technological revolution the like of which had never been seen before. Inventors, businessmen, scientists, explorers all had their part to play in the story of the Industrial Revolution and in this "Brief History", Thomas Crump brings their story to life, and shows why it is a chapter in English history that can not be ignored.

Grayling, "Financial Times". 'Provides an enduring sense of the extraordinary ingenuity that defines our relationship with nature' - "Guardian".
