'Really superb - a magnificent achievement. It is difficult to find a more readable history of British economic growth from early industrialization until the present digital revolution. Crafts' book will be read by anyone interested in the interrelationship between economic performance and institutional legacies and government policies. His main conclusions represent an original voice that provides important lessons for the post-Brexit era.' Herman de Jong, University of Groningen
'Essential reading on the UK experience of economic growth from Industrial Revolution to the recent financial crisis. A synthesis of the latest empirical research across a broad range of disciplines assessed through the framework of modern economics, this book identifies long-standing deficiencies in the operation of the economy, and shows 'history matters'.' Sara Horrell, University of Cambridge
