The movement known as the Industrial Revolution started in Britain in the 18th Century. By 1850, industrialization was taking root in parts of Western Europe and the USA, and by the end of the 19th Century, it had spread to Russia and Japan. It created the modern, industrial world in which we live today. The book charts the development of power-driven machinery, improvements in transport and the growth of towns. It also looks at the effects, both good and bad on how people lived and worked. The book's approach brings the history of the Industrial Revolution alive through the voices of business people, entrepreneurs, reformers and the workers themselves.
