4.0 out of 5 stars A well-illustrated account of this epoch-making period, 26 July 2013
This review is from: The Industrial Revolution (Shire Living Histories) (Paperback)
In the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, the fabric of the countryside changed profoundly. As the Enclosure Acts swallowed up communal land and smallholdings were bought up by land-hungry squires, farm labourers were forced to seek elsewhere. And so began the migration of the rural poor from the country to become the new working class of the burgeoning urban centres, to dig the coal, stoke the furnaces and operate the looms that powered Britain to the forefront of the new industrial age. An epoch-making period in British history is succintly surveyed in this well-illustrated account.

This book is good for exploring the social impact of the Industrial Revolution a little further. Beautifully set out with great pictures. Would suit Senior School students more than primary ones.
