Synopsis:

The British Empire in its late-Victorian heyday spanned the globe and linked  a quarter of the world’s population to Britain. The New A-Z of Empire responds to the current burgeoning interest in empires and covers 400 years of British imperial history from the founding of the East India Company in 1600, through the ""First"" and ""Second"" British Empires and includes  the ""Scramble for Africa,"" World War I, the Mandate System, Dominion status, World War II, nationalism, decolonization, and Commonwealth development. Over 400 alphabetical entries contain a mine of essential information including individual personalities, territories, political ideas, diplomacy, law, administration, business, commerce, exploration, art, and  literature. Entries cover the essential factual information, but also include the latest historiography, extensive cross-referencing, an index, and suggestions for further reading, both in print and online. The New A-Z of Empire is an indispensable reference tool for students and specialists and the general reader.

Book Description I.B.Tauris Co. Ltd., United Kingdom, 2011. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The British Empire, especially in its late-Victorian heyday, spanned the world and linked a quarter of world s population to Britain through a shared, official, allegiance to the Crown. In the long history of empires the British imperial state was among the most powerful ever and a major global player. A New A-Z of Empire catches the current burgeoning interest in empires and covers over 400 years of British imperial history from the founding of the East India Company in 1600, to the First and Second British Empires, the time of High Empire following the War of American Independence, the unprecedented expansion of the Scramble for Africa, the development of Dominion Status and the history - often turbulent - of decolonization and the growth of Commonwealth. The 400-plus entries include a rich panoply of individuals, territories, treaties, politics, the law, diplomacy, war and peace, administration, business and commerce, exploration, literature, art, literature and scholarship. Readers will find a mine of fascinating factual information, in concise form, with expert historical assessment, cross-referencing between entries and suggestions for further reading. The valuable time-line is essential to pick through the long period of complex history and links to key web resources are provided. A New A-Z of Empire is an indispensable tool for the scholar and student, and for the general reader interested in the rich history of the British Empire: a story of obscure foundation leading to dominance over a huge swathe of the globe, now represented by mere pinpricks on the world map.
