Drawing on the extensive literature relating to the theme, and incorporating new research findings, it analyzes the rise and decline of the countys industrial sector.

While the long-term dominance of the textile industry is emphasized, its importance is viewed as part of the wide range of industrial activity that came to characterize the countys economy. The text is divided into four parts, each dealing with a distinct phase of economic change and engaging with key historiographical issues. The first covers the period up to the late 18th century, contributing to the debate on proto-industrialisation.

The second concerns the Industrial Revolution era, assessing the degree of economic discontinuity that occurred. The third examines economic change from early Victorian times until the outbreak of World War I, incorporating discussion on the notion of entrepreneurial failure.

The final part analyzes the decline of Lancashires staple industries from World War I, considering how far the countys economy can now be seen as de-industrialization.
