Launched in Great Britain in the mid-18th century, the Industrial Revolution transformed much of the world from a simple agricultural society into a complex industrial society. Arranged thematically, Industrial Revolution: Primary Sources includes excerpts from speeches, diary entries, newspaper accounts, novels, poems, memoirs and other documents from the era.


"...does an excellent job of explaining this critical time period and its impact on human history...a good way to tackle such a complex and far-reaching time period as the Industrial Revolution, especially for the middle school or high school reader. The text is well written and straightforward...a great reference source for any student interested in researching this fascinating period of world history."--ARBA (2004)
