New Lanark, the former cotton spinning village, is known as the pioneer of technological and social change in the Industrial Revolution. This new edition traces the community's history from its conception as a centre of mass production in to its present day standing as a World Heritage Site and beyond.

    New Lanark is an exceptional example of a purpose-built 18th century mill village, set in a picturesque Scottish landscape near the Falls of Clyde, where in the early years of the 19th century, the Utopian idealist Robert Owen () inspired a model industrial community based on textile production. It was there that Owen first applied his.   But Lanark is so entirely surprising that any first encounter with it is an encounter with the new. It is the kind of book that could look like proof of madness if Author: Sarah Ditum.
