Benefits and Costs of Industrialization, Industrialization Pros and Cons, Glarus and Scranton, Effects on Swiss communities
This article is based on my book, Konflikte der
Industrialisierung: Industrie, Raum und Gesellschaft in Glarus und
Scranton 1840-1914, a study which examines and compares the
industrialization process in its path of success as well as the social costs
it entails. The two cases of comparison concern different industries,
but resemble each other regarding region (a valley), the time period,
and the massive environmental transformations during their histories
