The Town Labourer, 1760-1832 (Barnes & Noble Digital Library)eBook - 2011
In this 1917 volume, the second installment in a pioneering trilogy that includes The Village Labourer (1911) and The Skilled Labourer (1919), the authors shift from agricultural laborers to the urban working class. Here the Hammonds identify class exploitation as a pernicious effect of the Industrial Revolution and advocate governmental regulation as a fair solution.
