Labour in Britain, 1830-1914

Donald MacRaild, David E. Martin

    Research output: Book/ReportBook

    Abstract

    In the 19th century, work shaped people's lives. The nature and variety of their labour governed where and how they lived. The main theme of this wide ranging analytical narrative is how the lives of the working class changed in Britain between 1830 and 1914. Few groups of workers were unaffected by the transformation of the economy for most, the impact was profound. In a study that deploys a range of primary material and takes account of contemporary historical writings, the authors examine the nature of the changes that took place and their consequences. The treatment is thematic, while ensuring that a clear account is given of how workers' economic, social and cultural lives were subject to change.
