External Reviews

"The focus seemed to me to be more on economics and the developments of industry and communications and their effect on England than on how people lived their daily lives, though this is not unreasonable given the scope of the book and its size. And, like it or not, economics does govern all aspects of our lives" - Goodreads Review.
