Publisher's summary

Explore the captivating history of the Industrial Revolution!

For most of human existence, people lived in a somewhat similar fashion. Everything that has been produced, from food and raw materials to clothing and other finished products, has been done either solely by hand or with some help of animal power. This was the same across the eras and throughout the world, no matter how advanced or backward the various civilizations were.

Yet, our lives today couldn’t be more different. Most of our products are made by machines and mechanical power, allowing for greater productivity and a higher quality of life, in general. That advance was made possible by what we today call the Industrial Revolution. Its start in the mid-18th century signalized a slow but unwavering transformation from a handmade manufacturing civilization to a machine-powered industrial society.

In The Industrial Revolution: A Captivating Guide to a Period of Major Industrialization and the Introduction of the Spinning Jenny, the Cotton Gin, Electricity, and Other Inventions, you will discover topics, such as:

  • Birth of the Revolution
  • British Motors Start Rolling
  • Cogs of the Revolution
  • Dissemination of Change
  • Sparks of a New Revolution
  • Effects of the Transformation
  • And much, much more!
