Introduction of Industrial Sociology

The Industrial Revolution that took place in England in the 18th century changed the course of human society. The revolution, through essentially took place in economic field, its effects were never confined to the economic field alone. It brought down the cost of production, improved quality and maximised output. More than that, it changed the pattern of human relations. It eased human life, and proved more comforts and luxuries to man. At the same time, it altered human outlook and attitudes. It brought about radical changes in the very structure of the society.

Industrial revolution, in course of time resulted in the continuous process of industrialisation. Industrialisation is a phenomenon of world significance today. Development in the field of science and technology further added to the volume and speed of the process. Agricultural economy turned into industrial economy. Industrial area developed into towns and cities. The process of urbanisation began. People from rural areas started to flocking towards cities. Capitalist economy was born. Social classes with class-hatreds emerged. Social institutions and values underwent changes. New problems and new fears and new anxieties were invariably the result of it. The very face of the society changed. These developments necessitated the birth of a new branch of sociology called "Industrial Sociology" which essentially deals with the industrial society with all its complexities.

Obviously, much under the rubric "industrial sociology" can be parsed into narrower or broader considerations. Some of these have deep roots as "industry" and "urban" life were long intertwined. Athens and Rome both experienced changes that we should easily recognize such as the rise of "new men" via new wealth. The discovery of The Code of Hamurabi in the 1890s brought the pre-history of the city into the record, with rules for problems that are with us now, such as the pollution of common waters.

But industry is not always synonymous with the city. As technology evolved, engineering and development firms expanded into "industrial parks" the suburban factories of our age, very different from the scenes above... and yet echoing the same themes for sociology: regulation of time and place: work life institutions such as office parties, for example.

Inspite of so many laws for labour things are not going smoothly. This is due to corruption,caste and religion. More over law is restricted only to few people who can go to court and fight for long due to rabbit courts in India.
