This chapter sums up the key findings of this study on the role of the elites in the governance of the industrial district of the Black Country in England during the period from 1830 to 1900. The findings suggest that the increasingly energetic and conciliatory social leadership in the Black Country played an important role both in improving conditions and in promoting social harmony. The result also reveals that the elites played a major role in promoting and preserving social harmony in the area and that local social leaders helped to transform the district into a viable and stable part of British society.
