Was the Industrial Revolution Necessary? takes an innovative look at this much discussed subject. The authors ask new questions, explore new issues and use new data in order to stimulate interest and elicit new responses. They look at it from various, previously unexplored angles. These include the way the classical economists viewed natural resources as a constraint on rapid and sustained growth; how the Industrial Revolution might have appeared when looking forwards from the Middle Ages rather than the usual retrospective view; what contribution to the debate on living standards can be made by an understanding of income distribution within the family; and what has been gained from these new explorations?"@en ;
