Summary

A historian examines the evolution of dissenting thought and how it shaped the transformation of England from a rural to an urban, industrialized society. 
 
The foundations for the Industrial Revolution were in place from the late Middle Ages, when the early development of manufacturing processes and changes in the structure of rural communities began to provide opportunities for economic and social advancement. Successive waves of Huguenot migrants and the influence of Northern European religious ideology also played an important role in this process. The Civil Wars would provide a catalyst for the dissemination of new ideas and help shape the emergence of a new English Protestantism and divergent dissident sects. The persecution that followed strengthened the Nonconformist cause, and for the early Quakers it intensified their unity and resilience—qualities that would prove to be invaluable for business.  
 
The book proceeds to explore how in the years following the Restoration, Nonconformist ideas fueled enlightened thought, creating an environment for enterprise but also a desire for more radical change, how reformers seized on the plight of a working poor alienated by innovation and frustrated by false promises—and how the vision which was at first the spark for innovation would ignite revolution.

    “A rip-roaring new ebook that chronicles the saga of the two [Chevron] trials . . . Shocking, appalling and hugely entertaining.”—Financial Times   A behind-the-scenes look at the world’s biggest and most tangled legal case. On their way to winning a $19 billion verdict against Chevron in Ecuador, lawyers for the Amazonian plaintiffs invited a documentary film crew to record their every move. Unfortunately, their every move included fraud. Chevron subpoenas the outtakes and follows the clues from one improbable fraud to another. The drama culminates in a racketeering counter-trial, where it’s the testimony of one corrupt ex-judge against another. A detective story and courtroom drama, with an epilogue of keen commentary, Crude Awakening is the definitive account of Chevron’s struggle to prove that the truth is the truth—even when the truth is on the side of the big bad oil company, and not on the side of the charismatic little guy fighting for the indigenous people of the Amazon rain forest. Crude Awakening will captivate both students of law and students of human nature.   “A superb feat of legal journalism.”—Forbes

The attractive white Colonial Revival restaurants, with eye-catching porcelain tile roofs, illuminated cupolas, and sea blue shutters, were described in Reader’s Digest in 1949 as the epitome of “eating places that look like New England town meeting houses dressed up for Sunday.” Learn how Johnson created an orange-roofed empire of ice cream stands and restaurants that stretched from Maine to Florida . . . then all the way across the country.
