Child Workers and Industrial Health in Britain, 1780-1850

Peter Kirby

    Research output: Book/ReportBook

    Abstract

    Historians have long recognised the importance of child health during the Industrial Revolution, but few have explored the health of working children in any analytical detail. In this comprehensive study, Peter Kirby places the occupational health of employed children within a broad context of social, industrial and environmental change during the period 1780 to 1850.
