An important characteristic of this revolution is that data seems to be the raw Author: Patrizio Bianchi, Sandrine Labory. The consensus is that modern economic growth was started by the British Industrial Revolution. As is well known, during the Industrial Revolution itself, growth was in fact fairly modest, but the sudden take-off of gross domestic product per capita after or thereabouts was made possible by a long period of laying the foundations.¹ The transformation was tantamount to a phase transition.

    Historians view the Gilded Age as a period of rapid economic, technological, political, and social transformation. This transformation forged a modern, national industrial society out of what had been small regional communities. By the end of the Gilded Age, the United States was at the top end of the world’s leading industrial nations. This book takes an entirely new approach to the evolution of cities and of societies in premodern periods. Refining the theory advanced in his earlier study of China and Japan, Gilbert Rozman examines the development of Russia over several centuries with emphasis on the period immediately preceding the Industrial Revolution.
