9781843836339: The Rise of a Victorian Ironopolis: Middlesbrough and Regional Industrialization (Regions and Regionalism in History)

Middlesbrough's rise was truly extraordinary, from almost nothing in 1850 to a great industrial city within a few decades, its success based on iron and steel.
This book examines the development. It discusses the role of urban planners, charts the growth of the iron and steel industry including the introduction of new manufacturing techniques and the exploitation of important local iron ore deposits, and explores the role of a vast range of self-help institutions through which workers supported themselves at a time when aid from the state was minimal.
It shows how industries "clustered", explaining why Middlesbrough became the hub of such a cluster; outlines the demographic nature of the workforce, showing how there was much migration, with people coming to Middlesbrough to work for a while then leaving; and concludes by examining the adverse factors which quickly became apparent, some of which were to lead to Middlesbrough's decline - over-dependence on one industry, a relatively undiversified economic and social structure, and insufficient urban infrastructure which left the city vulnerable to debilitating environmental pollution.

About the Author:

MINORU YASUMOTO is a Professor in the Faculty of Economics at Komazawa University, Japan.

Review:

By some distance the most complete and sophisticated history ever attempted of Middlesbrough. ... [Yasumoto] has thrown down a challenge to other historians of regional economic development and provided a model for how the history of Victorian urban communities can be researched and written. --Northern History

Though packed with statistics, the author has worked them well into a readable narrative in which the general reader will find much of interest and a student of industrial and social history will revel. --Yorkshire Gazette & Herald

detail which paints a vivid picture [...] It provides an excellent basis for understanding the foundation and take-off in the growth of a town and industry, and makes an important contribution to the analysis of population growth during the rapid industrialisation of a previously undeveloped area. --Yorkshire Archaeological Journal
