"This is Professor Court's independent sequel to Sir John Clapham's Concise Economic History of Britain to 1750. Professor Court carries the story of the economic life of Britain from 1750 to the beginning of the war of 1939. He describes the growth of the first industrial state, its days of prosperity and the grimmer features that came with it and lasted longer." -- From the back cover.
