KIRKUS REVIEW

Volume four in an inimitable series, bringing industrial history up to the present day. The last volume treated of the Industrial Revolution; this volume brings all phases of English life together, tying up loose ends:- the farmer and food, old and new methods; the builder and buildings, town planning, slums, houses, furniture, churches, schools; production and distribution, old and new, banking and currency; public health; transport and communication; costume. Close tie-up between world-wide events, the people who brought them about and their effect in living and in social and economic life. The illustrations alone are enchanting.
