    Anyone know three differing historians which are accessible for Yr 13 students regarding Ind REvoltion for use in their coursework? I need 3 different historians interpretations about a theme in the Ind Rev. Perhaps maybe Hobsbawn could be one but struggling with 2 others the pupils will get quick. EP Thompson tooo long winded for them though great guy. Any ideas on another two, say based around Revolution or Gradual maybe? Regards All GED

    A very old - more positive - interpretation was put forward by T.S. Ashton (but he died in 1968!), e.g.
