Also the iron and textile industries benefited greatly with the revolution. Before the revolution, I had mentioned that manufacturing was done in private homes, the revolution expanded factories and then instead of making products at home which took several months, factories could produce a mass production. The Revolution also boosted the transportation, communication and banking systems. How did the Industrial revolution transform families? The industrial revolution improved the standard of living for some people; however it also made employment and living conditions for the poor and working classes very tough.
The picture implies that the technology used by farmers had become more and more popular, causing most farmers to take part in Bonanza farming in which they would harvest larger amounts of land in order to participate in large-scale commercial farming. Document J, written by Williams J. Bryan, infers that the cities heavily rely on the farms, but the farms do not rely on the cities in return. He mentions this due to the fact that typically those in the cities longed for the gold standard to take place whereas the farming class preferred the inflation of currency through the
The U.S. economy is in a growth path and the many people are overwhelmed by their work, choosing this group of people allows us to benefit of their buying power and also to give the opportunity to spend their precious time with their love ones.

The invention of the steam engine in the 18th century transformed the transportation capabilities of society and spurred further innovation as people and materials could be quickly transported on land for distances previously unimaginable. Finally, it is difficult to understate the ways in which the microchip and personal computer have fundamentally altered the organization of society; the instant access to and constant flows of information have changed communication, education, and business in modern society. In light of the social change wrought by these technological innovations, sociologist William Ogburn argued that technology was the basic cause of social change. In particular, he identified three processes by which technology drove social change: Invention, discovery, and diffusion. While invention can refer the combination and transformation of existing materials into new items, it can also refer to social invention and the propagation of new ideas.
The century of the 1800s saw massive amounts of change, especially in places like Great Britain. Many citizens in rural areas found themselves migrating more towards living in the cities. Thanks to new agricultural technology, the industrial revolution and changing social environments people during the 1800s started to move to cities in large numbers. Farming has been a well known trade for centuries but during the 1800s farmers started to become more creative and new technology was mad to enhance farming techniques. With technology like the steel plow and the use of crop rotation, farmers were able to produce more food using half the amount of resources.
There were a lot of new technologies popping up in all fields. You have ones that increase the speed of weaving and make it easier. Then there are ones that give you easier transportation like the train and roads. Then there are the ones that helped with communication and made it easier. A big help was all of England’s natural resources.
a. Improved human nutrition resulting from enhanced hunting skills b. Dramatically altered weapons and warfare caused by the use of bronze technology c. The adoption of settled agriculture that allowed more densely populated societies d. Major advances in human brain function e. The development of the wheel which gave advances to pastoralist societies Many historians believe the transition from hunting and gathering to agriculture led to societies that were more a. Isolated b. Egalitarian c. Patriarchal d. Dispersed e. Matriarchal The earliest religions of settled farming communities tended to focus on … a. a male / father protector god b. a female / mother earth goddess c. many complex anthropomorphic gods d. a covenant with a monotheistic God e. a dualistic afterlife of good versus evil The statue of a queen of Kush shown below was most probably influenced by the art of a. Greece b. China c. Egypt d. India e. Gaul Which of the following MOST helps to explain why the river valley civilization of ancient Egypt remained politically unified for much of its existence, while ancient Mesopotamia was frequently divided into rival
The Amish have coped with this situation in many ways. They have subdivided their farmland in order to grow diverse crops, increased their livestock and migrated to other states where farmland is cheaper and a majority of families work in cottage shops or rural factories in various trades. The rise of cottage industries and small shops marks an historic turn in Amish life. There are three new industries that they have embarked upon. One is home based operations in addition to bakeshops, hardware stores, quilt shops and repair shops to name a few that cater to tourist, but serve the needs of the Amish and non-Amish alike.
Nuclear families are of 2 generations, i.e. Parents and their children. Functionalists believe that industrialisation has led to an increase of nuclear families. In pre-industrialisation times, there were more extended families and was an agricultural society. The extended families worked together for production and to support each other until industrialisation began and referring back to Item B, the nuclear family became popular because it led to greater geographical mobility which means they will lose contact with the extended kin.
The American Industrial Revolution changed many lives of many American during the 1800’s and early 1900’s. She was becoming one of the most important industrial nations during this period through aggressive political negotiations, economical and military power. Americans were discovering better ways of manufacture of goods, making transportation more reliable and creating communication more accessible to the general public. The population began to grow at a rapid rate and technological advances promoted the growth of industries in rural areas throughout the US. New technologies allowed business owners to reduce labor and the hours in the movement of materials from one point to the other.
