Summary
"Industry in the countryside is a wide-ranging and readable study of manufacturing before the Industrial Revolution. It examines the widely debated theory of 'proto-industrialization', drawing on data from the Kentish Weald - an area which was already the centre of cottage industry in the Tudor era, and was also the earliest rural manufacturing region to 'de-industrialize'. The book analyses the Wealden textile industry from its workforce to its industrialists, and emphasizes the ubiquity of dual employment among textile workers and the importance of landownership to the entrepreneurs who financed rural clothmaking. It explores the local context of cottage industry: the pattern of landholding and inheritance, the local farming regime, and the demographic background to rural industrialization. Zell outlines what type of local economy became the site of this so-called 'proto-industry' and shows the impact of cottage industry on the people of such regions. He concludes by asking, is there anything in the 'proto-industrialization' model?"--Jacket
