About the Authors
  • Economic history is the story of man's work, particularly in agriculture trade, and manufacture. This book presents a panorama of work in Britain, as it increases in skill and complexity, through the ages that separate hunters of the prehistoric forests from the first beginnings of a modern highly organized industrial state.
