A New History of Britain Since 1688

  • History


Based on the most current scholarship concerning gender, race, ethnicity, and empire, this 15-chapter textbook comprehensively examines the development of and contestations against a British identity among the constituent parts of the United Kingdom since 1688. It takes seriously the role of Scotland, Wales, and Ireland in this process, and brings Britain’s imperial subjects and lands into the narrative, showing how integral empire was to the UK’s historical development. It examines the role environmental factors in economic development and their impact on the health and welfare of British citizens and subjects; and it uses gender, in particular, to illuminate power dynamics across a variety of settings. All this in a manageable length.
