A New History of the Isle of Man
This is a wide-ranging historical study of the Isle of Man from 1830 to 1999 written by several authors and edited by Professor John Belchem of Liverpool University. My contribution is a seventy-page section which describes how the Island developed from an agricultural, fishing and mining community in 1830 to a major holiday resort from the 1880s to the 1980s and how the holiday trade was then overtaken by the spectacular rise of the financial sector.
