Description: This book examines the early American cotton industry through British perspectives. The book covers the period from the 1780s to 1880, and concerns mainly Lancashire and New England, although there are many references to Scotland, Pennsylvania, and New York. By concentrating on the spinning branch of the industry, Cohen is able to contrast different types of technologies, workers, markets, and goods. For instance, the book analyzes how American industrialists acted differently than the British millowners and deals with the response of American factory workers to industrialization as distinct from the British operatives.
