HEYDAY: The 1850s and the Dawn of the Global Age
Over the course of the 1850s the world was reshaped by technology, trade, mass migration, and war. The global economy expanded fivefold, millions of families emigrated to the ends of the earth, technology revolutionized communication, and steamships and railways cut across vast oceans and continents, shrinking the world and creating the first global age. Illustrated, some color.
