A worthwhile survey of economic change since 1800, and its effects on the people and the landscape of Northamptonshire. ENGLISH HISTORICAL REVIEW This VCH volume with its authoritative contributors, its painstaking notes, relevant illustration, amps and index is a most important contribution to the County's history. LOCAL HISTORY MAGAZINE Will serve as an invaluable source of information and of references to follow up in further study. LANDSCAPE HISTORY Breaks new ground for VCH. Its more traditional focus upon topography [.] is convincingly superseded here by a countywide thematic and chronological survey of urban and rural development, infrastructure, industries and modern services from 1800 to the present. For those seeking an authoritative yet accessible account of Northamptonshire's development during the last two centuries it is difficult to recommend a more comprehensive, balanced and worthy account than this.
