How did the Industrial Revolu0on change the world? Social Changes Economic Changes PoliDcal Changes
The Industrial RevoluDon begins in England • Started in the early 1700’s • Advances in agriculture led to a rise in populaDon, less farmers required to feed the people • ALSO: • Numerous Rivers (water wheels, transportaDon) • Strong banking system (to build factories, start businesses) • Many available laborers (to work in the mills, operate machines and make parts) • Started with TEXTILE MILLS • (comon>yarn>fabric>stuﬀ!)
Grandma got nothin’ InnovaDons that increased the on these guys!producDon of cloth in the 18th century: FLYING SHUTTLE, 1733 SPINNING JENNY, 1770 WATER FRAME, 1769
Robert Fulton and the Steamship • Applied the Steam Engine that was invented by James Watt in 1775 (powered the paddles)• First steamship, called the Clermont, built in 1807• Traveled 300 miles in 32 hours!• Forever changed the way people traveled on water• Transportation and travel increased dramatically! The Clermont
The Second Industrial Revolu(on • Started during the middle of 19th century• Improved upon earlier technology and inventions• Used chemistry and physics to build more advanced machines• ASSEMBLY LINES increased the speed of factory production• New sources of energy were discovered and used for power:• KEROSENE• GASOLINE• ELECTRICTY
INVENTIONS that Changed the World! • Match the invention with the Inventor! A. Edison B. Bell C. Morse Phonograph, 1877 Dynamite, 1866 D. Nobel Telephone, 1876 E. Marconi Telegraph, 1837 Wireless radio, 1896
The Human Cost of Industrializa0on By the end of the 19th century, England and America were highly industrialized, however… While the rich factory owners got richer… Child labor was used (and abused) Factory injuries were common CiDes became overcrowded and polluted Long workdays, limle pay, lousy working condiDons for the lower class BUT, businesses needed more educated people = larger MIDDLE CLASS
MATCH THEM! New ways of Thinking : Society and Humanity John Stuart He argued that humans share a common Mill ancestor with apes, also argued that Natural SelecDon = “Survival of the Fimest” He believed that people could build a Utopian (perfect) society through Socialist Karl ideals Marx He said that Capitalism would fail because workers would revolt and create a Communist society without rich and poor, only the “working class” sharing wealth. Charles He believed that governments should only do those things which guarantee the Darwin greatest freedom and enjoyment for their people = U0litarianism (do as you please, as long as you don’t hurt others) Robert Owen
The Beneﬁts of Industrializa(on: Increased Health and Leisure • By the end of the 19th century, scienDsts had discover GERMS! • By the end of the 19th century, millions of (bacteria and viruses) (mostly) MIDDLE CLASS Americans and • LOUIS PASTEUR, French Europeans enjoyed • INCREASED LEISURE TIME microbiologist who created • This led to a demand for vaccines for rabies and anthrax MASS ENTERTAINMENT ! • Discovered new ways to ﬁght • People now had the wealth and the free diseases! (heaDng milk to kill Dme to enjoy things like: bacteria = pasteuriza0on!) • Theaters, SporDng Events, Concerts, • Bemer medicine = bemer health! Movies, Carnivals and…VACATIONS!
European Imperialism: Africa and Asia Beware! What is IMPERIALISM? What were countries like England, France, the Netherlands and Belgium hoping to accomplish in Africa and Asia? Acquiring RAW MATERIALS (for industry) Promising PROSPERITY to ciDzens back home (at the expense of colonized people) Zeal for MISSIONARY WORK (souls to save) From 1885 – 1914, nearly 100 million people were conquered and taken over by European countries Great Britain took over all of India Africa was carved up by 7 diﬀerent European naDons: populaDons grew, but natural resources, tradiDons and culture were lost, as well as self-‐rule.
So how did European na(ons jus(fy their overseas Empires? Europeans believed they were more civilized and “superior” to all others IndustrializaDon needed to be spread throughout the world Belief in “Social Darwinism”: Survival of the Fimest…countries! A new wave of NaDonalism made them want to grow stronger by defeaDng weaker countries, building their armies and increasing their industrial output
India and China: meet GREAT BRITAIN! The BriDsh East India Company had controlled India for over a century, unDl…. The Sepoy MuDny of 1857 proved that the company had lost its grip on India So, Queen Victoria ordered that the BriDsh Crown take DIRECT CONTROL OF INDIA = “The Raj” (lasted unDl 1947) In China, the BriDsh were buying tea, silk and porcelain, China only bought silver Part of the British Empire, 1914 To balance the trade, England started to sell OPIUM, a highly addic(ve drug China was turning into a country full of drug addicts, so they made Opium illegal, then blocked BriDsh trading ships 1840 – 1st Opium War, China lost Britain now had free trade in China and 5 open ports
China and Japan move forward… China -‐ Qing Dynasty ended with revolt in 1911 Sun Yat-‐sen – (1866 – 1925) Leader of the NaDonalist Party, GOALS: ○ Drive out the Qing Dynasty ○ Create a DemocraDc Republic of China ○ Guarantee economic security for China ○ A_er his death, his followers split into two rival parDes: Communists vs. NaDonalists Japan – becomes a major military and industrial naDon The Meiji RestoraDon – ended rule of shoguns in 1867 ○ For Imperial Expansion, Japan needed: ○ More natural resources for industry ○ To open new overseas markets for trade ○ ModernizaDon, especially weapons
“It is forbidden to kill; therefore all murderers are punished unless they kill in large numbers and to the sound of trumpets.” ~Voltaire Unit 4 Review:
Outbreak of World War I Military Alliances in Europe, based on: Who was assassinated? Where? What two countries started the war? The Balkan “Powder Keg”
Na0onalism and Militarism: Major Causes of World War I • A sense of NATIONAL UNITY and PRIDE: • Fueled Rivalries between European naDons (compeDDon to be the #1 country) • Encouraged NaDons to expand their Empires (conquering lands and adding colonies) • GROWING MILITARISM in Europe led to: • Built up larger armies • Stockpiled powerful weapons • Researched new technology to perfect the art of modern warfare
A War of Alliances: Match the Countries! RUSSIA GERMANY AUSTRIA-‐HUNGARY SERBIA FRANCE BULGARIA ITALY BRITAIN OTTOMAN EMPIRE UNITED STATES
WWI: A LONG and TOTAL WAR… Most Europeans believed the war THE RESULT: would end quickly, and involve Countries had to commit to TOTAL only a few countries… WAR: However, it LASTED MUCH 1.

The United States enters the War At the start of the war, America wanted to STAY OUT of ﬁghDng It was a EUROPEAN WAR, and not our problem THEN… In 1915, a German U-‐Boat sunk the LUSITANIA, a defenseless passenger ship: 118 Americans died WOODROW WILSON used this as the main reason to join the Allies in 1917 Part of his FOURTEEN POINTS for PEACE: An end to SECRET DIPOLAMCY Freedom of the SEAS New associaDon of world naDons: LEAGUE OF NATIONS
World War 1 comes to an END (Cease-‐ Fire: Nov. 11,1918) By the end of the “Great War”: Millions of soldiers and civilians died (most of any war to date) The Economies of many European naDons were RUINED THE TREATY of VERSAILLES: The Allies wanted to PUNISH and BLAME Germany for the war: Created the League of NaDons (though it did not accept all of Wilson’s 14 Points…) The Treaty’s “War-‐Guilt” clause angered Germans

President Harry Truman: • “At the present moment in world history nearly every nation must choose between alternative ways of life. The choice is too often not a free one. One way of life is based upon the will of the majority, and is distinguished by free institutions, representative government, free elections, guarantees of individual liberty, freedom of speech and religion, and freedom from political oppression. The second way of life is based upon the will of a minority forcibly imposed upon the majority. It relies upon terror and oppression, a controlled press and radio, fixed elections, and the suppression of personal freedoms.• I believe that it must be the policy of the United States to support free peoples who are resisting attempted subjugation by armed minorities or by outside pressures.• I believe that we must assist free peoples to work out their own destinies in their own way.• I believe that our help should be primarily through economic and financial aid which is essential to economic stability and orderly political processes.” - Speech given to Congress, 1947
