Late in the agrarian era the rate of innovation in western Europe increased substantially, and by the latter part of the 18th century the industrial revolution was.
His book, being an economic and social history of Britain since , has a much larger subject-matter than the question of 9 Ibid. All these explanations still leave open the question of why the revolution did not occur earlier, e.
A landholding peasantry had already disappeared in much of England, as had subsistence agriculture. And it possessed an extensive and fairly highly developed manufacturing sector and an even more highly developed commercial apparatus.
However, it was foreign demand, Hobsbawm argues, that provided the real spark for the Industrial Revolution. If anything, he emphasizes its role even more than Phyllis Deane does.
This brings us to the third major factor Hobsbawm discusses after the domestic and foreign markets : government.
THE INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION IN EUROPE
Incidentally, the wars in 11 Eric Hobsbawm, Industry and Empire, Phyllis Deane has already given much of the answer: the cotton industry was integrally connected to international, and especially to colonial, commerce. Until , Hobsbawm notes, over 90 percent of British cotton exports went to colonial markets, mainly Africa.
At times in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries cotton penetrated the markets of Europe and the U. For example, while they date the Industrial Revolution from about the s, he dates it from the s. One can argue, however, that the perennial debate among scholars over when exactly the revolution began and ended is not of much consequence.
On the question of whether low interest rates triggered the Industrial Revolution—which Ashton effectively answered in the affirmative—Hobsbawm follows Deane in not even dignifying it with an answer.
This is one issue on which recent empirical research has apparently refuted traditional historiography.
Not only does Allen focus on the global context; he also incorporates the relatively new field of environmental history.
The main argument of his book is that the reason why industrialization happened in Britain rather than elsewhere was the unique combination of high wages compared to other countries and cheap energy.
In China, for example, energy was expensive and labor was cheap, so it made no sense to use inventions like the steam engine and the coke blast furnace that substituted coal and capital for labor.
That is, industrialization was profitable in Britain and unprofitable everywhere else; that is why it happened there. The very important export of draperies and other woollen fabrics caused London, their export point, to grow in the seventeenth century, and it continued to grow as trade with the Americas, Africa, and Asia expanded.
High wages meant high demand, which further stimulated economic growth. They did not lead to widespread mechanization and globalization. Only after British engineers in the mid-nineteenth century had made the steam engine more fuel-efficient, so that it consumed less coal, did it become profitable for other countries with less abundant supplies of coal to use it—and they did so.
Allen also has much to say about the agricultural revolution. The extra output made it possible to feed a larger urban or proto-industrial population and so fostered the growth of manufacturing. Institutional change in the countryside caused the growth of the city and propelled the economy forward. Many sold their land and moved to London, a process that facilitated the growth of large estates.
Others invested in 19 Ibid. A peculiar thing about that world-historic event is that no matter how much one studies it, there remains something mysterious about it. By France had become an industrial power, but, despite great growth under the Second Empire , it remained behind Britain.

Other European countries lagged far behind. Their bourgeoisie lacked the wealth, power, and opportunities of their British, French, and Belgian counterparts.
Political conditions in the other nations also hindered industrial expansion. Germany , for example, despite vast resources of coal and iron, did not begin its industrial expansion until after national unity was achieved in The rise of U. And Japan too joined the Industrial Revolution with striking success. It was not until the five-year plans that the Soviet Union became a major industrial power, telescoping into a few decades the industrialization that had taken a century and a half in Britain.
The midth century witnessed the spread of the Industrial Revolution into hitherto nonindustrialized areas such as China and India. In terms of basic materials, modern industry began to exploit many natural and synthetic resources not hitherto utilized: lighter metals , new alloys , and synthetic products such as plastics , as well as new energy sources.
