Luke Skywalker's exile in The Last Jedi has been a big point of contention amongst hardcore Star Wars fans, who balk at the idea of one of the most powerful Jedi in the galaxy going away to be alone instead of fight with the Resistance. As it turns out, that idea came from none other than Star Wars creator George Lucas . No matter what, it seems that Luke was going to be off by himself, deep in self-reflection, and isolated from the rest of the crew. Rian Johnson and J.J. Abrams took some ideas from Lucas' initial plans for what would've been his version of Episode VII .

A new book detailing the art of The Last Jedi features some concepts George Lucas had done before he sold Lucasfilm off to Disney. He was reportedly set to direct what became The Force Awakens before he handed over the reins to Disney and had some concept art drawn up to reflect his vision. In the concept art and Lucas' pitch, Luke is exiled away on an island that looks like Ahch-To, but with Jedi temples that look more like something from Return of the Jedi .

George Lucas' ideas for the new trilogy might come out someday and then fans will get to decide which ideas they like better. For now, The Last Jedi is tearing up the box office while creating a mighty big divide among Star Wars fans . It goes perfectly with what a new Star Wars movie does every time one is released: causes a huge uproar from the fans who feel that they have been robbed of their childhoods and blame J.J. Abrams and Rian Johnson since they can't blame George Lucas anymore.

Concerning the effects of technical change, Rosen describes the development and adoption of steam power as triggering a sudden and momentous transformation of the British economy. In this case, Rosen?s assessment of the economic impact of steam power does not duly take into account the contributions of von Tunzelmann and Crafts, who have shown that steam power actually gave a significant contribution to aggregate productivity growth only from the 1840s.?

There is surely a general surge of interest in the origins of the British Industrial Revolution among the general public, but I am afraid this book, although entertaining, is too selective and unbalanced in taking stock of the recent research in economic history to be recommended to fit the bill. Hence, until a new attempt is made, for those willing to approach the subject from outside, it is probably worthwhile to put in some extra effort and read recent scholarly contributions such as Robert Allen?s The British Industrial Revolution in Global Perspective or Joel Mokyr?s The Enlightened Economy .
