Industrialism and the Intellectual reaction: Understanding the Labor Movement

We’ve been discussing in class the intellectual reaction to the industrial revolution.  As thinkers, you know that every major historical event can be viewed via multiple perspectives, and depending on the perspective through which you view the event, your interpretation of that event/phenomena will vary. The industrial revolution is no different.

We’ve investigated the pros of the industrial revolution, but now we’ll begin to examine our Industrial Revolution guiding question, “To what extent was Industrialization feudalism in new clothes?” via primary source analysis.
