    This book is truly epic in nature Lengthy, it guides the reader through the entirety of the British empire The focus is primarily around the government business sector, with the social attitudes of British citizens and colonists also getting sufficient treatment worth noting that what is rarely discussed are royal ongoings.James is splendid on many levels The research is both thorough and detailed The social history is beautifully intertwined with the history The book is broken down first This book is truly epic in nature Lengthy, it guides the reader through the entirety of the British empire The focus is primarily around the government business sector, with t...

    In writing this critique, I must advise any prospective reader to brace him herself for a long stretch, for this is a weighty and comprehensive book about one of the most extraordinary empires that ever existed In the case of the British Empire, it did not come into being as part of a deliberate plan from one nation to dominate a large corner of the globe The Empire s origins are to be found in Elizabethan England, in which a poor nation barely recovered from a prolonged period of internal dis In writing this critique, I must advise any prospective reader to brace him herself for a long stretch, for this is a weighty and comprehensive book about one of the most extraordinary empires that ever existed In the case of the British Empire, it did not come into being as part of a deliberate plan from one nation to dominate a large corner of the globe The Empire s origins are to be found in Elizabethan England, in which a poor nation barely recovered from a prolonged period of internal dissention and external threats from Imperial Spain, began to reach out to both the Americas and India to establish...

    This is an excellent book about the British Empire i.e its colonies, global struggles, etc that any world history teacher or history buff ought to read As an American, I really appreciated the British perspective.The book covers a lot of ground since it begins in 1600 and ends in the 1990s Some of the parts I liked best included the many wars with rival France from the late 1600s to the early 1800s, how British colonizers saw themselves as the good guys who spread civilization, commerce This is an excellent book about the British Empire i.e its colonies, global ...

    A definitive single volume history, which through the extent of the British Empire and everyone else s reaction to it, pretty clearly delineates why the global map looks the way it does today Starting with the colonisation of America and finishing with African independent nationhood, James does a fine job of explaining the e...

    Lawrence puts together a well written book covering a comprehensive range of the British Empire and the imperialism, colonialsm, and early phases of international capital during the reign of the Empire Areas of historical interest covered in this book are mercantilism, the economic value of exploiting colonies in order to build the British Navy to the most powerful force on the international sea, the trans Atalntic slave trade, and an in depth focus on the East India Company and India I especi Lawrence puts together a well written book covering a comprehensive range of the British Empire and the imperialism, colonialsm, and early phases of international capital during the reign of the Empire Areas of historical interest covered in this book are mercantilism, the economic value of exploiting colonies in order to build the British Navy to the most powerful force on the international sea, the trans Atalntic slave trade, and an in depth focus on the East India Company and India I especially found areas of great interest concerning references to slavery in Jamaica, the North American colonies, the stockholders of the East India Company earliest form of capitalism , and the India Acts as Britain turned to the value of India after losing the North American colonies after the American Revoultion The book also briefly mentioned the dissolution of the Ottoman Empire and the acqui...

    I m not sure what to make of this book On the one hand I was never bored reading it, but on the other it s tough to recommend I think the problem really just boils down to scope The author has set himself quite an audacious task here, and I m sad to report that it falls a bit short, on length if nothing else chronicling the rise and fall of the worldwide British empire is a massive undertaking, and even coming in at over 600 big pages, what you have here is mostly a very high level overview I m not sure what to make of this book On the one hand I was never bored reading it, but on the other it s tough to recommend I think the problem really just boils down to scope The author has set himself quite an audacio...
