The paper shows that although the Industrial Revolution brought along many economic opportunities, this age is still associated with the decadence of social values and the sharp division of people into various social classes. The world was suddenly divided into working class, the rising middle-class and the business class, with each social class bearing unique characteristics. This paper first presents an overview of this era before discussing class struggle in detail. It shows that the Industrial Revolution as a major phenomenon took over most parts of the world, especially European countries, in the late 18th century and continued until the middle of the 20th century. While many would like to believe that this age is responsible for huge economic changes and some political ones too, the paper suggests that we should not forget that it is this particular period which brought the sharpest social problems and class divisions into effect.
