Summary
"Industrialisation and Society: A social history, 1830-1951 provides an introduction to the effects of industrialisation on British society, from Queen Victoria's reign to the birth of the Welfare State in the 1940s." "This book deals with the remarkable social consequences of the Industrial Revolution as Britain changed from an agricultural society to an urban society based on industry. As the first nation to undergo an industrial revolution, Britain was also the first to deal with the unprecedented social problems of rapid urbanisation combined with an unparalleled growth of population." "Industrialisation and Society surveys contemporary ways in which the government and ordinary people tried to cope with these new pressures, including the reflective critical thinking of the age."--BOOK JACKET
