About This Book

British industry isn’t dead.

Yet.

ICI was Britain’s biggest manufacturer and exporter, while GEC was its biggest employer and Morris Motors made over half of its cars; Courtaulds dominated global cloth production and produced the first man-made fibres; BSA was the world’s biggest producer of motorbikes; De Havilland produced groundbreaking aeroplanes and some of the world’s first jet engines.

And yet, these companies have all collapsed, taking with them nearly 200 years of industrial pre-eminence. British industry is dead, killed off by ‘Made in China’ stickers and US market dominance.

Or is it?

Will Britain Make It? explores the rise, fall and future of British industry and all the complexities surrounding it. Who’s to blame for its slow decline? What about Brexit? Can it be resurrected? If you’ve ever asked any of these questions, then this is the book for you.
