Excerpt

This fourth and last volume of the Illustrated Edition of my English Social History covers the Nineteenth Century. Its principal theme is the economic causes and social and intellectual consequences of the Industrial Revolution in full blast. By the end of Victoria’s reign it had given increased material comforts to an enormously enlarged population. It had done so by substituting machine production for craftsmanship, and the modern great city for the village as the normal residence of Englishmen. The consequent changes in the ethos of civilization and intellect form, I confess, too large, intricate and varied a theme for the brief space that can here be afforded. But if this volume is patently inadequate, I hope it may at least be suggestive.
