    Landes Originally published inthis book discusses the inventions and technological advances that fueled the industrial revolution in Western Europe beginning in the 18th century. It also introduced new technologies, new types of transportation, and a different way of life for many. While previous industrial revolutions brought about mechanisation, mass production, computer control and automation, the fourth industrial revolution is thought to be fundamentally different.
