Rise of Industrial Society in Western Europe

I selected this as the first unit since it explores many ideas that will continue to be discussed throughout the course. I explore both the economics and the social cost of the industrial revolution. Central Question for the Unit: What are the positive and negative results of business activity with people’s lives?
