In Rethinking the Industrial Revolution: Five Centuries of
Transition from Agrarian to Industrial Capitalism in England,
Michael Andrew Zmolek offers the first in-depth study of the
evolution of English manufacturing from the feudal and early modern
periods within the context of the development of agrarian
capitalism. With an emphasis on the relationship between Parliament
and working Britons, this work challenges readers to 'rethink' the
common perception of the role of the state in the first industrial
revolution as essentially passive. The work chronicles how a long
train of struggles led by artisans resisting efforts by employers
to transform production along capitalist lines, prompted employers
to appeal to the state to suppress this resistance by coercion.
