The Decline and Revival of British Industry Since the Second World War

The distinguished industrial expert Geoffrey Owen analyses the complex reasons behind the delayed modernisation of British industry and provides a timely appraisal of the often troubled path that Britain has taken from Empire to Europe. Through case studies of key industries from textiles to pharmaceuticals, steel to electronics, Owen offers a vivid account of Britain's industrial progress. He explains why some industries collapsed while others stayed healthy, and challenges widely help assumptions about British economic decline. In a new final chapter he argues that, thanks to the reforms carried out over the past twenty years, British firms are well placed to complete in the so-called new economy.
