Abstract

The Second Industrial Revolution in America was a continuation of the historical forces implicit in the first industrial revolution in England. Nevertheless, the fact that it is understood as a“ second” revolution suggests correctly, that it embodied fundamental differences guiding history in new directions. This brief outline of the Industrial Revolution hopes to provide the student with an appreciation of one of the greatest paradigm shifts in world history. Included in this analysis is a focus on the question, what are the feature of the Second Industrial Revolution which make it different from the first, and furthermore, why did it take place in America, propelling the United States into the number one spot in terms of GDP, a spot is continues to hold even today?
