The Oxford History of the British Empire: Volume II: The Eighteenth Century (repost)

P. J. Marshall and Alaine Low, "The Oxford History of the British Empire: Volume II: The Eighteenth Century"
English | 1998 | ISBN: 0198205635, 0199246777 | 664 pages | PDF | 38 MB

Volume II of the Oxford History of the British Empire examines the history of British worldwide expansion from the Glorious Revolution of 1689 to the end of the Napoleonic Wars, a crucial phase in the creation of the modern British Empire. This was the age of General Wolfe, Clive of India, and Captain Cook.

The international team of experts deploys the latest scholarly research to trace and analyze development and expansion over more than a century. They show how trade, warfare, and migration created an Empire, at first overwhelmingly in the Americas but later increasingly in Asia. Although the Empire was ruptured by the American Revolution, it survived and grew into the British Empire that was to dominate the world during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
