About this book


This is a completely revised edition of Payne's authoritative account first published in 1972, of the state of entrepreneurship in the nineteenth century, in the light of recent research. It examines in depth the validity of the widely accepted belief that there occurred a deterioration in the quality of British entrepreneurship during the course of the nineteenth century.
