HIST 125 the Industrial Revolution Assignment
please respond to this thread by writing a thorough and thoughtful essay that addresses EACH PART OF ONE OF THE FOLLOWING QUESTION SETS:
– How did the Industrial Revolution transform people’s daily lives? Be sure to include sanitation and labor.
– How do Burke and Hare illustrate the changes brought about by the Industrial Revolution?
– The following quote from Jaques Barzun’s From Dawn to Decadence addresses the railroad. Discuss the impact of the railroad on daily lives or on the Industrial Revolution. In what ways did locomotion create a technological transformation for humanity as a whole – at least in the areas where it existed? “At first, machinery affected only those who organized its use and the men and women who worked in factories. But by 1830 a different type of machine came into being that changed the life and the minds of all peoples. The memory of it is nearly gone, but it was the completest change in human experience since the nomadic tribes became rooted in one spot to grow grain and raise cattle; it was in effect a reversal of that settling down. Locomotion by the force of steam, the railroad, uprooted mankind and made of it individual nomads again.” (Jacques Barzun, From Dawn to Decadence: 1500 to the Present: 500 Years of Western Cultural Life (New York: HarperCollins, 2000), 539)
