This collection traces the key developments in the modern coal mining industry from its early beginnings in the 18th century to the present day. Developments in mining techniques, the impact of industrialization on demand for fuel and the economic importance of coal are all discussed. The reasons for British dominance during the period 1870-1914. The subsequent growth of overseas markets between the two world wars, and the need to adjust to the development of new energy sources in the second half of the 20th century are among the other important issues included.
