English Culture and the Decline of the Industrial Spirit, 1850-1980 examines how the English middle- and upper-class culture affected England's economic development during the period of 1850-1980. Wiener argues that England was "embarrassed" by its industrial success and strove to omit industrialism from its sense of Englishness, preferring instead to focus on notions of "stability, tranquility, closeness to past and nonmaterialism" (5-6). Wiener departs from the traditional literature by viewing the Industrial Revolution in both economic and social terms. He sees the issues as intertwined and inextricable. Furthermore, he argues that the 20th century consequences of the 19th century's "peaceful modification" was a culture of anti-modern sentiments.

LUKE
Best among ordinary

MOLLY
This is a very predictable author. When you get a book for free, you can read it. The intrigue is present, the unbundling is clear.
