“Industrialization and Colonization” covers the latter decades of the 19th century and the early years of the 20th. Building on the advances of the industrial revolution, this "post-revolutionary" period is similarly defined by remarkable technological and industrial innovation. An era of firsts—steel bridges, sewing machines, bicycles, typewriters, radios, automobiles, airplanes, electric light bulbs, and the first motion picture—the Age of Progress gave birth to unprecedented modes of productivity, transportation, and communication. Thomas Alva Edison and Wilbur and Orville Wright are among the historic figures discussed. Challenging review questions encourage meaningful reflection and historical analysis. A unit test and answer key are included.
