    • How it developed…
      • Second industrial Revolution (1850-1900) = electricity, sound, film and cars
    • How it continues today…
      • 1900-1950 - spread to other countries (USA, Germany, France)
      • 1950-now – spreading across the globe (Japan, China, Russia, India)
      • 1970-now – a new nuclear / technological revolution (global!)
    • We cannot understand the world we live in today and where it ’ s heading without studying how we got here!
