内容説明

This is an analysis of the development of the Lancashire economy since the 16th century. In particular it charts the move from an agrarian to a manufacturing base, arguing that industrial activity, especially in the textile trades, had become strongly represented in the economy well before the classic Industrial Revolution era. Analysis is undertaken of such key issues as the change from domestic to factory production and of the growing concentration of manufacturing activity in urban areas. The study goes right up to the present day, enabling use to be made of recent information and statistics from local government and regional planning bodies.
