Book Description Collins, 1980. Hardcover / Hardback. Book Condition: Very Good. No Jacket. First edition. Hardback. 1812 was one of the worst years ever known in England. The war against Napoleon had dragged on for nearly 20yrs. Stagnant trade, soaring prices and high taxation, necessary to pay for the war, were bringing ruin to thousands. Small wonder then that working men turned to violence when it looked as if the installation of larger, more efficient machines would throw them out of work completely. Calling themselves 'Luddites', the workers attacked mills and factories, wrecking machinery. The government sent in troops and passed an Act in Parliament making machine-breaking a capital offence. But the Luddites, despite the trials and the executions that followed, refused to give up. The author details the Luddites' struggle against mill-owners and the government, and her account of the events of the years 1811-1813 will show that the battle of workers versus management is no new phenomenon. Illus. + Index. 128pp. 12mo h/back. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. With pictorial glazed covers. Vg+. Bookseller Inventory # 15322
