Unit Overview

This unit explores the first century of industrialization and its widespread effects on the nineteenth-century world. In Chapter 26, you will read about the beginnings of industrialization in Britain. Think carefully about why industrialization occurred there and not, say, somewhere else like China or Japan. What conditions helped create an atmosphere conducive to industrialization in Britain and not elsewhere?
From there, you will read both about some of the characteristics of industrial life, and about the spread of industrialization to other parts of Europe, North America, and Japan. Think about the differences between life in pre-industrial societies and in newly industrialized societies. Was life better for people who lived in industrializing areas? Why or why not?
Finally, pay attention to the reasons why industrialization spread. Why did some states actively seek industrialization? Do you think their assessments of the advantages of industrialization were correct?
