Essays by T. S. Ashton, L. M. Hacker, W. H. Hutt and Bertrand de Jouvenel in development of the thesis that historians have, in general, harbored an anti-capitalist bias, especially with respect to their treatment of the Industrial Revolution. A number of relevant points are made, but the work is conceived in a rather polemic spirit.
