History of the British Coal Industry

Volume 3: Victorian Pre-Eminence

Roy Church
Assisted by Alan Hall and John Kanefsky

This second volume to appear in the History of the British Coal Industry covers a key period in the industry's development--a time when coal was the pivot on which British economic preeminence rested. Labour supply, capital formation, technology, markets, and trade unions are discussed as well as the experiences of the miners themselves: their earnings, cost of living, housing, health and mortality.
