9780140136968: English Culture and the Decline of the Industrial Spirit, 1850-1980 (Penguin History)

Drawing on a wealth of resources - from Mill, Dickens and Ruskin to newspaper reports and brewers' advertisements - this book chronicles the peculiarly English ambivalence towards industry in the last 130 years or so, and demonstrates how crippling this distaste for the capitalist ethos has been to our economic development.
