Can we be surprised that a protracted cataclysmic event such as the British Industrial Revolution continues to inspire such interest—from the opening ceremony of the British Olympics to the central subject matter of university courses in economic history? Yet books about the Industrial Revolution only rarely reach the shelves of the bookstores of Hobart, Tasmania where I am based. Emma Griffin’s Liberty’s Dawn: A People’s History of the Industrial Revolution did that in both hardback and paperback probably because it appears to be aimed at a popular audience.
