The Age of Improvement 1783 - 1867 Summary

The Age of Improvement 1783 - 1867 by A. Briggs

With over 80,000 copies sold since its first appearance in 1959, The Age of Improvement has every right to claim the status of a classic of modern historical writing. Asa Briggs' masterly study of the period stresses the underlying unity of the age. In the background are the new economic powers based on the development of a coal and iron technology, in the foreground, the problems posed by the world's first industrial revolution.
