In What Country Did the Industrial Revolution Occur Last?

The Industrial Revolution made its way into Japan, China and India in the latter half of the 19th century and the early 20th century, making these countries the last to be affected by the revolution as of 2015. The Industrial Revolution began in Great Britain.

France fell behind in the Industrial Revolution in the 17th and 18th centuries despite keeping up with England when it started. Russia's Industrial Revolution was short-lived and simple. The United States did not really feel its effects until after the Civil War, between 1860 and 1890.

As the Industrial Revolution expanded all over the world, governments had to find new and effective ways to protect laborers and provide them with the necessary services to keep them productive.
