DBQ Japan and India In the period from the 1800s to the 1930s, Japan and India both saw a great increase in the use of machines in the textile industry. Both countries had similar recruitment techniques but differed greatly in who the workers were, and their working conditions. Documents 1, 2, and 6 all show the increased use of machines and declined use of handmade items in India and Japan. (Document 1) which is the Indian textiles chart shows how India used more machines to create a greater amounts of pounds and yards from 1884 to 1914. The chart shows that machine-spun yarn became of greater quantities as opposed to hand-spun yarn due to the increase in machines.
Compared with India’s cloth textiles, Japan’s chart of cotton yarn in Document 2 shows that Japan is rapidly entering the textile market by its great incrementation in pounds of yarn made. This is due to the incremented utilization of machines in Japanese textile making, but since the chart groups have both hand-spun and machine-spun together, an additional document would be a broken down chart that shows Japanese hand-spun and machine spun yarn, as well as hand-woven and
In spite of all these changing times and circumstances, the tension between the upper and lower classes remained tenser than ever before, building up under the fabric of society. Russian became industrialized during the 1930's when Joseph Stalin instituted a series of what he called “five year plans". The plans were designed to rapidly increase the industrial capacity of the Soviet Union and change it from an agrarian economy to an industrial one. The plans succeeded and Russia did become an industrialized nation. Prior to the “five year plans”, Russia had mostly a peasant farming economy.
The length of railway tracks in Russia increased form 31219 miles in 1891 to 58392 miles by 1904. In the same time period, Russia’s coal production increased from 6.01 million tonnes to 18.67 million tonnes. This shows how the government’s investment in expanding and modernizing the country’s railways resulted in significant economic gains. This was a result of an increased ability to transport raw materials to areas with the greatest population, such as the area surrounding St Petersburg. The railways, particularly the Trans-Siberian railway, also gave Eastern Russia a link to Europe and Western Russia a link to the Pacific Ocean, which made it easier to export Russian goods.
Industrialization had been increasing for a long time in Japan and India in the twentieth century. This had been, for a long time, modernizing the cotton industry in each country. Japan and India’s economies relied heavily on the cotton industry, run from factories with a large amount of factory workers in addition. In both countries, workers had low wages and poor working conditions, as well as an increase in machinery over time. A difference between the cotton industries in Japan and India was that most Japanese workers were women whereas In India less than half of the workers were women.
From the years 1780-1832, Manchester, England was a leading textile manufacturing city soon after its first industrialized cotton mill was built in 1780. The city’s population boomed during the years of the industrialization increasing from 18,000 to over 300,000; predominantly made up of the working class and immigrants. In addition, Queen Victoria granted Manchester a royal charter after her pleasant visit during 1851, acknowledging the city’s great progress and giving it special privileges because of its success. Although many positive effects came from the textile manufacturing and growing population, the repercussion of its health issues, low morale, along with its working and living conditions overshadow its accomplishments. The industrialization of Manchester was successful for the modernization of man, yet its growth also raised many concerns in society.
“By January 1892, the Borgenichts had twenty people working for them…” (146). By conventional standards, one can argue the Borgenichts were not overtly successful. However, one must take into account the idea of relative success. Compared to the lives the Borgenichts lived in their respective home countries, live in the United States was prosperous and successful. Gladwell states, “the longer he [Louis] and Regina stayed up at night sewing aprons, the more money they made the next day on the streets” (149) .
Industrialization was booming after the Civil War, but a change in weather patterns in the early 1890’s began to devastate agricultural communities. This in turn led to a downward spiral in profits for those that manufactured farming equipment.6 As demand was reduced in the United States, these manufactures began to look for foreign markets that had a need for the equipment that was being produced. The annexation of the tropical island nations after the war provided new markets for the American made goods to be exported. Cuba also held a great economic advantage for American sugar interest. Although a large investment had been made in sugar and other trade exports, the outsourcing of crops that could be grown in the United States was popular amongst the populace of the United
Industrial Revolution Essay The cotton gin was a major impact on America. It impacted America by Southern planters beginning to plant more cotton. This made it so in 1793 10,000 bales of cotton were produced. Each was 500 pounds. Cotton was needed around the world because of the invention of the spinning machine.
America Transformed Timeline and Paper HIS/110 January 31, 2011 America Transformed Timeline and Paper The industrialization of America contributed to the economic development of the country in many, many ways. Firstly, we need to define industrialization, which usually refers to a change from home and hand production to machine and factory production. The invention of water-powered spinning and weaving machines greatly increased production of material. The cotton gin, which was invented by Eli Whitney in 1794, greatly increased the cultivation of cotton in the south. When steam power replaced water power, industries and factories arose, creating industrialized areas which attracted more and more people with the promise of paying jobs.
