INDUSTRIAL SOCIETY IN ENGLAND TOWARDS THE END OF THE EIGHTEENTH
CENTURY. By Witt Bowden. (Macmillan. 15s.) THESE two books, the first by the Professor of History at ,Wesley College, Winnipeg, the second by Mr. Witt Bowden, of the University of Pennsylvania, are evidence of the renewed interest in the history- of the beginnings of the industrial
revolution. The latter provides a useful introductory study based on a wide knowledge of the original authorities. Dr. Moffit's book is a study of economic and social conditions from 1740 to 1760 with special reference to Lancashire and it definitely adds to our knowledge. It will be valued by all students of English economic history.
