Richard Price offers a radical new interpretation of modern British history. He argues that the period 1680-1880 was a distinct era in British history, a dynamic period of much change but which was ultimately contained within clearly defined boundaries. Professor Price thus identifies the nineteenth century as the end of this period rather than the moment of modernity. Elegantly written and lucidly organized, this study will be of value to all scholars and students with an interest in this fascinating period.

Review:

"...historians and informed students will find in this work a suggestive and persuasive case for reperiodizing modern British history." Ian Duffy, History

"...the book has particular merit in making us think about the issue of periodization in social history is undoubted and on this score alone it is to be welcomed as an important contribution to the litereature...the book will undoubtedly help students to think about periodization in history rather than simply accepting the time periods with which we all too readily present them." Labor History

"The first paragraph in this book concludes by announcing that "it follows in the great tradition of works such as Asa Briggs's Age of Improvement, and Harold Perkin's Origins of Modern English Society, and will be of enormous interest to all students and scholars of the period." These are not slight claims, and one might well wonder whether the results will justify them. They do...No relatively short review (and probably not one a great deal longer) can do justice to this book...It is not a clichè to say that any student or scholar of the period must read this book." Albion

"This is a distinctly interesting work--"not a textbook," but "a general history"--in which Price advances "an argument about a particular phase of society's history." Journal of Interdisciplinary History

"it will appeal to academic historians and will be valued by them...the book will undoubtedly help students to think about periodization in history rather than simply accepting the time periods with which we all to readily present them." Labor History

"Richard Price is the first historian of Britain to make a systematic case for viewing the eighteenth century and the first eight decades of the nineteenth as a distinct historical juncture that ought to be more for continuity than for change...laudably ambitious and often imaginative argument, and it reflects an impressive command of a ver rich and deep secondary literature." Jrnl Of Modern History

"...Prie has produced a brilliant work of synthesis and analysis that should be read by everyone interested in modern British history or in the history of the industrial revolution. Price writes with verve and clarity, and demonstrates an astonishing mastery of the historical literature. It is a challenging, thought-provoking, and important work. " Business History Review

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 1999. Hardback. Condition: New. New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Richard Price here offers a sweeping interpretation of modern British history. He challenges the dominant assumption that the nineteenth century marked the beginning of modern Britain. British Society argues on the contrary that nineteenth-century British society was the extension of an earlier era whose main themes first appeared in the late seventeenth century and which continued to shape the social, economic and political history of the country until the end of the nineteenth century. This book casts light on the main themes of economic, political and social history, and offers alternative interpretations on questions and issues that are central to the history of modern Britain. It follows in the great tradition of works such as Briggs s Age of Improvement, and Perkin s Origins of Modern English Society, and will be of enormous interest to all students and scholars of the period.
