The Industrial Revolution in Japan book
Three major developments defined the second phase of the industrial revolution in world history from the late nineteenth century to the mid-twentieth. Those are industrialization outside the West, redefinition of the West's industrial economy, and growing involvement of nonindustrial parts of the world, along with an overall intensification of international impact. While industrial revolutions in Japan and Russia constituted the most striking additions to the roster of transformed economies and several British dominions industrialized. China and the Ottoman Middle East, however, raise different analytical problems. These two societies were not held as colonies, though European seizures cut into the territory of both states. The second phase of industrial history still saw the world's population divided between a minority of outright industrializers and a majority of societies strongly shaped by the interests of the industrial powers. The second industrial period lasted until after World War II. It cut across a host of significant events, including the world wars and the depression.
