The French Indian War was one of the main reasons the British Empire fell into an economic crisis. Tensions between England and its Colonies in America started growing. Many taxes were put on the colonies along with restrictions which led to the colonists to rebel against the Empire. England needed to support the war in the New World by spending money for troops and supplies for 7 years. After the end of the war, England fell into a debt.
These measures enforced high import duties and compelled consumers to pay higher prices (Corn Laws, n.d). Several debates occured around the Corn Laws as they had a significant impact on different groups of British society. Landowners and manufacturers had opposite views on these Laws. Moreover, quite a few groups emerged against them, amongst which the Anti-Corn Law League. Such groups formed to fight against the Corn Laws and eventually succeed in abrogating them and introduce a free trade in Great Britain.
Until then the National Assembly was divided into people who wanted to abolish slavery as all men are equal and into people who were against the abolition as this would harm the French economy. However, the principles of the Revolution led to uprisings in Saint Domingue in 1791 already. The very violent Haitian revolution which lasted until 1804 finally led to the independent republic of Haiti. Other colonies became independent far after the Revolution and some are still French departements
In Warlow’s article, he provides an overview of the numerous economic changes that occurred in the 18th century. He discusses the origins of mercantilism and the slow transition to its end, the influence by Smith’s publication of The Wealth of Nations on mercantilism, and how physiocracy rebuffed the principles of mercantilism and preferred an economic philosophy based on land (Warlow, 2007). Mercantilism started as a practice during the transition from the feudal economy to merchant capitalism and international commerce. A strong central authority was vital to the expansion of markets and mercantilists considered that the power of the state should be enhanced by the accumulation of wealth in gold and silver. Mercantilists contended that nations compete for business opportunities.
The fifth cause, the existence of the resources which are wanted close to each other like the coal and the iron. The sixth cause is the new technology that is allowed by the scientific revolution and the innovation which increased the production and made it cheaper. The seventh and the last cause is the export of hand made goods and importing different materials were allowed because of the imperialistic trade routes. These are the causes that started the industrial revolution in England. Body 2 :- In Britain, England is were the industrial revolution began but how and why England not France.
This is defined as France’s “mission civilisatrice” that took place in continents such as Africa and Asia. The so called “mission civilisatrice” was characterised by improving their colonies. The capitals were provided with better local services, roads were built in the north of Africa, new agricultural techniques were introduced; while the missionaries brought “l’action sanitaire” (thanks to the Pasteur Institute in Indochina and Tunis), “l’action religieuse” the building of churches and schools. Therefore, colonisation brought an undeniable improvement in alimentation and
The French belief system was based mainly around abiding to their faith. Technological and economic discoveries made people aware of new ways to use science in lieu of philosophy and theology. The improvement in agricultural, diet, health care and living conditions helped to expand the middle class and their societal beliefs agriculture, entrepreneurship and urban living.

Maybe this carceral society cannot be supposed as a general theory of western civilization. Additionally, Foucault thinks it is Enlightenment helped to change to disciplinarian style of Ancient Regime. In reality, according to the query of some scholars, in the aftermath of the defeat of Napoleon, there was a very powerful conservative backlash against liberalism and Enlightenment in Europe, which persisted in some countries well into 19th century, but not the “discipline and punish” model of society that Foucault imagined. Lastly, there are some errors in Foucault’s claiming of the changing timing in the Western penal system. It shows that the number of crimes punished by the death penalty increased to the early 19th century not fell as well as corporal punishment was still often used in 19th
The British were in massive debt following the French and Indian war, therefore they placed taxes on the colonists in order to regenerate some of that money lost. The Sugar Act of 1764 taxed the sale of molasses in hopes to gain some lost money, but this act led the people of Boston to boycott the molasses industry. The Stamp Act of 1765 shortly followed, making colonists buy a stamp with every paper product. The rage the colonists felt over the passing of this act, led the colonies to begin to unify as they together boycotted the trade industry. The Townshend Duties of 1767 imposed taxes on glass, lead, paint, paper and tea, but this only led to the colonist to again boycott the trade of those items and start newspaper attack.
The French and Indian War can be argued to have the most effect on altering the relations between Britain and the Colonies. The relationship between these two power houses began very subtle, as England followed through with a policy of salutary neglect toward the Colonies. The consequence of the war caused the Political and the Economic state of Britain to changed dramatically, causing them to act differently towards the Colonies. This made the Ideologies of the colonies change greatly. Becoming a winner of a mass of land was great to reward to Britain, but this caused them to change the way that they were going to govern, especially in North America.
The processes that made the Market Revolution of 1800-1840 possible were the spread of market relations, the movement of the population towards the West, and the rise of political democracy. The Market Revolution saw innovations in transportation and communication. For example, the telegraph, invented by Samuel F. B. Morse, made instantaneous communication possible. Moreover, the combination of the recently invented steamboats, railroads and telegraph lowered transportation costs, opened new land to settlements, and made it easier for enterprises to sell products. Additionally, the introduction of the railroads stimulated the market for coal, used as fuel, and for iron, used to build rails.
