Synopsis: This is a pioneering book dealing with the contrast between England before the coming of industry and England in the twentieth century. The small scale, primarily rural and familial society in which Shakespeare, Cromwell and Newton lived their lives is compared with the large-scale, industrial and urban society of our own experience. The conclusions and lines of inquiry considered extend well beyond the history of England in the seventeenth century. The book has important implications for understanding preindustrial societies that exist today as well as similar societies in the past. Even more significant is the insight into contemporary society: not only in dealing with the pre-industrial world itself but in providing points of contrast and reference for understanding the industrial world that grew out of it.
