Overview

The Industrial Revolution began in Great Britain during the 1700s and spread to America in the early 1800s as the colonies formed and grew.

Detailed images and easy-to-read text show readers the ups and downs of this time period, including child labor laws, labor unions, muckrackers, and immigrant and slave labor. The colorful scrapbook layout, helpful table of contents, and accommodating glossary combine to create a reading experience that is easy for readers to navigate through.
