Industrial Revolution by Poul Anderson is a novella first published in 1963. It is a somewhat introspective adventure story about the legendary beginnings of an organized revolution of asteroid miners against an authoritative and bureaucratic Earth.

This short story concerns the revolution of colonies in the asteroid belt

themes. A pretty good suspense story.
