Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book titled The Long Road to the Industrial Revolution contains the Table of Contents, and a list of illustrations. The Industrial Revolution was arguably the most important event in (recent) history. Before the Industrial Revolution, which began in the second half of the eighteenth century, living standards increased painstakingly slowly, if at all. The book traces the growth of human capital in the centuries between 1000 and 1800, in comparison with China, Japan and India. It demonstrates how important the European Marriage Pattern was for understanding Europe's past.

Keywords: European marriage pattern; human capital; industrial revolution
