The Decline and Rise of British Industry - David Clutterbuck & Stuart Craine

W. H. Allen, 1988, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dustwrapper. Edges of the textblock lightly tanned.

From the cover: “Has Britain really recovered from its decades-long industrial decline? What has to be done to maintain the recovery? And how did our industry become so uncompetitive in the first place? Here are the facts and the statistics behind the collapse of British industrial power and influence between the end of the Second World War and the late 1970s, and the subsequent return to apparent health in the Thatcherite years. Views vary widely on the causes of the decline; yet there is a remarkable degree of agreement as to what needs to be done to continue the recovery. Continue is the key word, for though the patient is off the critical list, he is far from dancing with rude health.”
