Eightneenth-century Britain is sometimes thought of as sedate, oligarchical, and consevative. First published as part of the best-selling Oxford Illustrated History of Britain, Paul Langford's Very Short Introduction to eighteenth-century Britain reveals the essential vitality as Britain evolved into a great power, an industrial giant, and a dynamic commercial society. The transforming effect of a hundred years is concisely narrated in its diversity and complexity.
