Work, Society and Politics

The Culture of the Factory in Later Victorian England.

by Joyce, Patrick

The acclaimed major interpretation of 19th century society and politics concerning the human impact of the industrial revolution. Offers a subtle and responsive understanding of the formation of class consciousness, and a recognition that deference and stability as well as independence in class relations grew out of working-class culture and community , and thus out of the centre of people’s lives. With a new Preface by the author.
