WATCH: Unit 9 Overview

A series of trends connect us to the world of 1750, including increasing political rights, growing systems of production and distribution, and faster and more sustained networks of communication. But while these revolutions have created vast wealth and opportunity, they also allowed only limited change for some, and caused suffering for many.
