This book is based on an in-depth conversation between Howard Burton and Margaret Jacob, Distinguished Professor of History at UCLA. Topics examined during this extensive conversation include Margaret Jacob’s motivations to become a historian and her comprehensive analysis of the history of the Industrial Revolution and interpretation of the major economic motivations on the ground, comparing daily life experiences in England, France, Belgium and the Netherlands. A sophisticated understanding of the past naturally involves a composite approach that marries economic motivations with associated cultural factors of educational trends, religious influences and scientific and technological awareness, and more.

This carefully-edited book includes an introduction, Measuring Motivations, and questions for discussion at the end of each chapter:

I. Historical Origins - Rebel-turned scholar

II. Decrypting Newton - From physics to theology

III. Beyond the Numbers - Searching for causes

IV. Apprenticeship - Pivotal time to develop

V. Religion and Geography - Unitarianism and other factors

VI. Theory vs. Practice - France’s surprising underdevelopment

VII. Lessons Learned? - Towards cultivating the innovative spirit

VIII. History Today? - Reflections on research and teaching

IX. Past and Future - New books and bizarre faucets

X. Righting Wrongs, Slowly - Gender discrimination in the academy
