Book DescriptionThe industrial revolution was the single most important development in human history over the past three centuries, and it continues to shape the contemporary world. With new methods and organizations for producing goods, industrialization altered where people live, how they play, and even how they define political issues. By exploring the ways the industrial revolution reshaped world history, this book offers a unique look into the international factors that started the industrial revolution and its global spread and impact. In the fourth edition, noted historian peter n. Stearns continues his global analysis of the industrial revolution with new discussions of industrialization outside of the west, including the study of india, the middle east, and china. In addition, an expanded conclusion contains an examination of the changing contexts of industrialization. The industrial revolution in world history is essential for students of world history and economics, as well as for those seeking to know more about the global implications of what is arguably the defining socioeconomic event of modern times.
Editorial ReviewIn this new edition Peter Stearns updates and refines his authoritative account of industrialization's global spread and impacts. This concise and highly readable account remains a very suitable introduction for non-specialists. --David Northrup, Boston College "The provocative questions, wide-ranging geography, attention to individuals as well as groups and updated chapters ensure Stearns will remain the outstanding single volume covering the industrial revolutions. Like its subject, The Industrial Revolution in World History has continued to evolve. This fourth edition will continue to challenge students to analyze the effects of industrialization and modernization on the local, regional, national, and global levels for the future as well as the present and past." --Jonathan Coopersmith, Texas A&M University Praise for Previous Editions "Skillfully places the industrial revolution in world perspective and discusses its global rippling effect." --The Historian "An impressive survey of the spread of industrialization from the beginnings of that process in the United Kingdom and northwest Europe to much of the rest of the globe, with an emphasis on the social consequences of that continuous change...Stearns compressed all this with rich prose and exceptional clarity." --History: Reviews of New Books "Sets forth the high standards and ingenuity of thought one comes to expect from a master scholar...In a most economical but engaging fashion, this interpretative essay goes forth to weave an illuminating tapestry tracing the industrial revolution from its origins in 18th century Britain to ...the 21st century." --Labor History "The spread of the book is excellent. Many countries totally overlooked in most books get treatment here...Stearns's approach completely integrates the social changes that resulted from the industrial revolution...This book would serve as an excellent text in an introductory course on the industrial revolution or as a supplemental text for a general history course from 1800 on. It is well written, easily accessible to general readers, and presupposes no technical background for the reader." --Choice
