The Second Industrial Revolution , also known as the Technological Revolution , [1] was a phase of rapid industrialization in the final third of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th. The First Industrial Revolution , which ended in the early to mid 1800s, was punctuated by a slowdown in macroinventions before the Second Industrial Revolution in 1870. Though a number of its characteristic events can be traced to earlier innovations in manufacturing, such as the establishment of a machine tool industry, the development of methods for manufacturing interchangeable parts and the invention of the Bessemer Process , the Second Industrial Revolution is generally dated between 1870 and 1914 up to the start of World War I. [2]

Advancements in manufacturing and production technology [ which? ] enabled the widespread adoption of preexisting technological systems such as telegraph and railroad networks, gas and water supply, and sewage systems, which had earlier been concentrated to a few select cities. The enormous expansion of rail and telegraph lines after 1870 allowed unprecedented movement of people and ideas, which culminated in a new wave of globalization. In the same period new systems were introduced, most significantly electrical power and telephones. The Second Industrial Revolution continued into the 20th century with early factory electrification and the production line , and ended at the start of the First World War.

    Essays can be extremely easy to write. Each paragraph should be written like so: Sentence 1: Topic Sentence Sentences 2-4: Example Sentences Sentence 5: Concluding Sentence. You can change a bit, obviously, maybe add more sentence for Example Sentences or whatever, but that is the basic format used. I m not going to write it for you obviously, but this is a good start.

    The concept was introduced by Patrick Geddes , Cities in Evolution (1910), but David Landes '' use of the term in a 1966 essay and in The Unbound Prometheus (1972) standardized scholarly definitions of the term, which was most intensely promoted by Alfred Chandler (1918–2007). However, some continue to express reservations about its use. [3]

    Landes (2003) stresses the importance of new technologies, especially, the internal combustion engine and petroleum, new materials and substances, including alloys and chemicals , electricity and communication technologies (such as the telegraph , telephone and radio ).

    Although the economic and social problems of the first Industrial Revolution distressed many, these concerns were set aside during the nation’s bloody Civil War (1861-1865).

    In the aftermath of the Civil War and Reconstruction, the American economy grew considerably as it entered “The Second Industrial Revolution,” generally recognized as the period between 1870 and 1914. The U.S. was awash in an abundance of natural resources from its newly acquired territories, a growing supply of labor immigrating from Europe, and the migration of emancipated African Americans North and West, an expanding market for manufactured goods, and the availability of capital for investment.
