Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Nature Incorporated explores the Industrial Revolution in New England from an environmental perspective. The advent of the industrial age brought about significant changes in gender and class relations, and also in work and culture. But it also involved a fundamental change in the way the natural world was handled. Focusing on the legendary Waltham-Lowell style mills, this book examines how these textile factories brought water under their exclusive control. It examines the legal issues that arose in settling disputes over water, and describes the far reaching ecological consequences of industrial change.

Synopsis:

A reinterpretation of industrialization that centres on the struggle to control and master nature.
