From the Irish slums of Manchester to the forts of the Slave Coast to the ruins of Dhaka, India- from Civil War battlefields to Lancashire factory floors, from slave ship sailors to machine-breakers to child labourers, these poems tell the stories of the industrial age.

In moving, engaging prose, Lebowitz gives space to the forgotten and to the brutal beauty of our world.
