Industrial Britain presents in three main sections a broad view of Britain during the Industrial Age. The first covers industrial change, the birth of the factory, the age of iron, patterns of trade, the slave trade, farming and transport, factory acts, wealth, and images of laborers. The second discusses societal change during the Industrial Age, population growth, changing cities, religion, migration, science and technology, and the role of women. The final section explores power roles: the power of the people, restoration of Parliament, and chartism. An engaging book that involves students in the study of history by raising thought-provoking questions and by providing activities to reinforce the topics studied.
