Traditional view: Discontinuity (Toynbee, Ashton and Landes):
IR as a broad change in the British economy and society.
Modern view: gradual
the IR as a result of technical change in only a few industries (Crafts and Harley).
the IR as the result of evolutionary development that affected other European economies almost as much as England. It was the product of the gradual process of settled agrarian societies toward a more rational, economically oriented mindset (Clark).
