About this Unit
The impact of the industrial revolution was felt earliest and most profoundly in many parts of the world through changes in transport and communications. During the mid 19th century the telegraph, postal services, the steamship and the railway diminished distance in ways no innovations ever had before. This unit will examine their social, economic and political impact as well as later innovations such as civil aviation and road motor transport.
