Progressive Movement The Progressive Movement was an effort to cure many of the ills of American society that had developed during the rapid industrial growth in the last quarter of the 19th century. As Americans became increasingly aware of the need for reform, attitudes toward the proper role of government shifted from the limited role preferred in the 19th century to the increasingly expanded role chosen in the 20th century. During the era of progressive reform new groups and movements emerged that were successful in bringing about effective changes. Muckrakers drew attention to the need of reform by highlighting great injustices in their writings and woman played a major role addressing poor working conditions, child education, and woman’s suffrage. The success of progressivism owed much to publicity generated by the muckrakers.

The Progressive Movement The Progressive Movement can be defined as a period of reform which lasted from the 1890s to the 1920s.

This was no different in the United States, where cultural effects shaped a generation and contributed significantly to a national identity that still has remnants in American culture today.

Stalin recognised that the industrial revolutions which, had made Western Europe and Northern America so strong, had been based on iron and steel production. If the USSR were to drive towards modernisation, Stalin believed this heavy Industry had to have a role somewhere. The first FYP was from October 1929 to December 1932; the second FYP was from January 1933 to December 1937; the third FYP was from January 1938 to June 1941.

Stalin in his speech to the Industrial Managers in Feb 1931 expresses how vital it is for the USSR to create Heavy Industry and not move ‘backwards’.
