Irish potato famine: potatoes a staple, absentee landlords grew cash crops to sell to Europe/ Britain, 1845 Potato Blight- millions starving, driven from land because no crops- immigrated
Clearances: part of enclosure policy, got rid of poor tenant farmers- “crofters” so they could raise sheep- immigrated.
Rapid urbanization that created slums, health problems. Unemployment, crime, exploitation of the worker, unfair imprisonment, prostitution, etc.
Steam ships and railways facilitated the movement of people and goods across and between continents. Populations moved away from rural areas to the cities, initiating mass migrations that saw urban areas increase dramatically in size. This was also a period of intense global migration as some Europeans sought to escape famine, poverty, oppression, and political instability at home–it is thought that some 70 million people left Europe during the 19th century, establishing themselves primarily in North America and Australia.
