not yet rated|write a review
In this seminal book, Christopher Johnson writes a full-scale study of the rise and decline of industrialization in the Bas-Languedoc region of France. Working within a broad 200-year frame, Johnson examines the process of how and why a successful industrial region transformed itself toagriculture. Johnson is primarily interested in de-industrialization, which sets him apart from previous historians who have studied regions only in terms of the growth toward industrialization.

Editorial Reviews

"The narrative is executed with the vigor and flourish of literary and stylistic genius. It is robust, impassioned, concrete, and sometimes evocatively metaphorical. Humor and even some good-natured sniping pepper the text."--American Historical Review
