My copy of this is a soft back dated 1987, and is well produced and put together by the Manchester University Press. The body of this, roughly 400 page, work covers not only economic growth and wealth (and the lack of it at certain periods), but Chartism, Trade Unionism and living standards. Perhaps even more interestingly the concluding chapter considers Lancashire's loss of industrial primacy. In Walton's view the high water mark was 1913 - with the rot setting in immediately after World War I.
All in all an interesting work of quality: recommended not only to academics, but any reader looking for a thoughtful volume on Lancashire and its history.
