This podcast episode focuses on the rise of industrial society in Western Europe during the 1800s. Not only is this an exploration of the events and technologies related to industrial factories, it also explores the impact that this event had on politics, economic theories, and the lives of the average people. The industrial society had both positive and negative impact on society. The industrial and economic competition that occurs during this time period serves as a prelude for later military conflict that erupts in World War One and the Communist Revolution. Those events occur in chapter two.
