This work is concerned with the period of English history when changes were going on which have commonly been described by the term industrial revolution. There is no agreement, however, even among historians, as to the meaning of the phrase. There is a tendency to use the term in connection with a long succession of historical events, with a continuing process that is in reality evolutionary in character. Chapters include: The Age of Invention; The Triumph of the Machine; The Great Industrialists; and The Industrial Workers.
