The study of industrial history in Wales has long been dominated by coal. The aim of this book is to shift the focus of the field away from coal and toward a more diverse picture of an economy which was changing rapidly. Extending their chronological scope from the early eighteenth- to the late twentieth-century, and encompassing a wider range of industries, the essays in this book combine studies of the internal organisation of workplace and production with outward-facing perspectives of Welsh industry in the context of the global economy. Addressing such topics as employer-led attempts to modernize workplace practices and state-led attempts to attract new investment, the essays in this book offer a selection of insights into the rapidly altering face of industrial Wales.
