In the Age of Industrialization, economics, society, politics, and culture collided. In particular, the Industrial Revolution provided the underpinnings of Europe’s societal transformations and decisively shaped the century, including changes in mass culture and the growth of democratic challenges to existing political institutions. This series of lectures explores specific technologies, most of which we take for granted today, to offer a general picture of the economic and social development of Western nations from 1760 to 1900.
