Domhnall The history of the Industrial Revolution was only possible because it went alongside the history of modern capitalism. Volume 1 incorporates a historical survey, especially in Chapters 26 to 33 (Part 8). The ingredients for an industrial revolution were present in earlier epochs, notably in the Hellenic world, and Marx explains why this did not take place.
