Description

After the introduction of machinery in agricultural and the textile trades in the late eighteenth century, workers often reacted by attacking and destroying the new machinery. This machine breaking ended in the 1830s with a surge of religious, political and working class propaganda. This paper will identify and explain those factors that brought about an end to the working class machine breaking in the early 1830s. This paper will use political and religious pamphlets, working class and radical publications. The Times [of London], parliamentary debates, memoirs and autobiographies, biographies and other secondary literature.
