Beatrice PotterMoreThis early work by Beatrice Potter Webb was originally published in 1902 and we are now republishing it with a brand new introductory biography. The Case for the Factory Acts is a fascinating work on social history and industry. Beatrice Potter Webb was born in Gloucester, England in 1858.

Both her mother and brother died early in her childhood leaving her to be raised by her father, Richard Potter. He was a successful businessman with large railroad interests and many influential friends in politics and industry whose company the young Beatrice would become accustomed to. Upon reaching adulthood, Potter moved to London and helped her cousin, Charles, a social reformer, research his book The Life and Labour of the People in London. It was during this time that she was introduced to Sidney James Webb, who later became her husband and collaborator. The Webbs, together, wrote eleven volumes of work which arguably shaped the way subsequent scholars thought about sociology.

They also collaborated on more than 100 books and articles on the conditions of factory workers, and the economic history of Britain, among other subjects.
