The Industrial Revolution and the changing face of Britain An exhibition at the Barber Institute of Fine Arts (2008-9) During the late 18th and early 19th centuries, Britain experienced change in all aspects of life, as a result of the Industrial Revolution. Scientific advances and technological innovations brought growth in agricultural and industrial production, economic expansion and changes in living conditions, while at the same time there was a new sense of national identity and civic pride. The most dramatic changes were witnessed in rural areas, where the provincial landscape often became urban and industrialized following advances in agriculture, industry and shipping. Wealth accumulated in the regions and there was soon a need for country banking.

Saudi royal calls for regime change in Riyadh A senior Saudi prince has launched an unprecedented call for change in the country’s leadership, as it faces its biggest challenge in years in the form of war, plummeting oil prices and criticism of its management of Mecca, scene of last week’s hajj tragedy. The prince, one of the grandsons of the state’s founder, Abdulaziz Ibn Saud, has told the Guardian that there is disquiet among the royal family – and among the wider public – at the leadership of King Salman, who acceded the throne in January. The prince, who is not named for security reasons, wrote two letters earlier this month calling for the king to be removed. “The king is not in a stable condition and in reality the son of the king [Mohammed bin Salman] is ruling the kingdom,” the prince said. “So four or possibly five of my uncles will meet soon to discuss the letters.

Red-state politics in and out of the college classroom For two decades, I have taught U.S. women’s and gender history at Southern Illinois University at Carbondale, a blue town in a blue state, marooned in an ocean of red. Bordered by Appalachia, the Mississippi Delta and the Ozarks, Southern Illinois is surrounded by the country’s poorest rural regions. Some of my students arrive from white farming communities and are the first in their families to attend college. They grow up on church, military, patriotism and traditional family, and they come from a world different from mine. I grew up in 1970s San Francisco, and my parents were leftists.

Map of London Social and Functional Analysis 1943 [Updated] This map of London districts, was intended to be used as a grand “masterplan” of how a post-WW2 London could look.

Saudi Arabia’s new King Salman moves quickly to settle future succession King Salman of Saudi Arabia signalled continuity at a time of turmoil in the Middle East on Friday – but paved the way for a new generation of royals to take power as his predecessor Abdullah was buried and his subjects swore their allegiance. Salman, who is 79 and widely said to be in poor health, became king, as long expected, on the death of his half-brother, aged 90, in the early hours of the morning. The new crown prince and heir to the throne is Prince Muqrin, 69. In a carefully-choreographed transition, Saudi media emphasised the king’s grandiose title of Guardian of the Two Holy Shrines – a reference to Mecca and Medina – to underscore his Muslim credentials as a key element of Saudi legitimacy.
