    Why did industrialisation have important political effects on Europe during the nineteenth century? (You should refer to developments in at least two of the following countries: Britain, France and Germany in your answer)

    I can only really say about Britain (but i'm sure a quick google search will find the answers for the others)

    Britain
    -Growth of Radical movements during the 1810s (e.g Luddites)
    -Growth of middle class influence resulted in the 1832 Great Reform Act
    -Development of the Chartist movement
    -Growth of trade unionism in the 1850s (skilled workers) and the period of 'new unionism (unskilled workers) in the 1880s
    -Allowed for the greater expansion of the British empire and this often led to conflict/potential for conflict with other European nations e.g the Fashoda Crisis in 1898

    Will fill in some points on France and Germany from memory
    Industrial unrest in France (1968 in particular I seem to recall), I believe started in 19th century.
    Germany- Personally I believe that industrialisation helped lead to WWI. The arms race which started in the 1890's was part of this.
    Political pressure to colonise other countries.

    Can't remember any others right now, but I echo the idea that google would be likely to help.
