Unwin charts and explains the course of industrial transformation that occurred in England during the 16th and 17th centuries. The volume treats topics such as business organization and the rise of the corporation, the accumulation of productive capital and its control by a small number of entrepreneurs as well as the rise of modern finance and trade unions. But Unwin goes beyond a mere history industrial organisation, tracing the evolution of modern industrial classes and demonstrating that the emergence of distinct social classes in their modern form was closely associated with the division of labor. The result is an all-time economic history classic and required reading for students of economic history. This New Edition has been typeset with modern techniques and contains a newly compiled Index of important topics. It has been painstakingly proofread to ensure that it is free from errors and that the content is faithful to the original.
A Study in American Economic History1st edition / ISBN: 978-1-62273-000-1

Women in Industry is a critical examination of labor history of women in the United States from colonial times to the turn of the 20th century. Since its first publication a century ago, it has received hundreds of citations and had a formative influence in fields as diverse as labor history, gender studies, and economic history methodology. Women in Industry examines working conditions, wages and other forms of compensation across industries and professions. While firmly rooted in economics, Abbott does not overlook the social causes and implications of shifting patterns of female employment nor the organized opposition such changes attracted by established interests. Using masses of carefully compiled evidence, Abbott's work forcefully made the point that, contrary to popular belief, women did not suddenly replace men in industrial employment sometime in the 19th century. Rather, women and children were a regular and prominent feature of American industries in general and manufacturing in particular. Forming the first comprehensive account of female employment in a developing manufacturing economy, Abbott's extensive primary research and dispassionate interpretation make this essential reading for students of economic history. Academically rigorous yet accessible, Women in Industry remains unsurpassed in the reach of its coverage and the depth of its scholarship: It is fairly recognized as a timeless work and a source of inspiration for contemporary economic historians everywhere.

The Industrial Revolution at Stockport and Marple1st edition / ISBN: 978-1-62273-003-2
Availability: In stock
This is the story of the Industrial Revolution told from the perspective of Samuel Oldknow one of Britain’s most successful entrepreneurs. A fortuitous discovery in the ruins of a cotton mill in 1921 brought to light a mass of letters and account books, deep in dirt and soiled with rain. It is from this material that Unwin produced his now classic account of the Lancashire cotton industry, perhaps as close as one can get to a barometer of the wider economic transformation that rendered Britain the industrial powerhouse of the world. This New Edition has been typeset with modern techniques and contains a newly compiled Index of important topics. It has been painstakingly proofread to ensure that it is free from errors and that the content is faithful to the original.
