Café Histoire: La "Révolution" industrielle

Monday 20 April 2015 17:30-19:00

The term "Révolution Industrielle" is attributed to the economist Adolph Blanqui (1798-1854) who describes it as a "19th century historical process that makes an agrarian hand-crafted society evolves towards an industrial and commercial society".

It marks a major turning point in history, including in France, but can we truly speak about a new "révolution"?
