What were the forces that thrust the British Empire to its extraordinary position of greatness and then just as powerfully drove it into decline? And why is nearly every nation on earth, in one way or another, the consequence of the British Empire? In these 36 lectures, Professor Allitt leads you through four centuries of British power, innovation, influence, and, ultimately, diminishment - four profound centuries that literally remade the world and bequeathed the complex global legacy that continues to shape your everyday life. This is a remarkable lecture series; one that will give you fresh insights into world history in a wide range of areas - political, economic, technological, social, and more. And it will also give you a comprehensive overview you won´t find offered anywhere else - a context into which you can integrate new knowledge about this country, as well as understand the background of current events in so many other countries that were once part of Britain´s empire, from Ireland to China, and in Africa and the Caribbean. Indeed, it seems fair to say that one cannot truly understand the most important aspects of world history without a firm grasp of the history of the British Empire. In giving you that grasp, these lectures draw on a vast range of critical events, riveting personalities, revealing anecdotes, and eloquent quotations. Compelling, comprehensive, and astonishing in the force of its narrative power, each lecture will give you a refreshing new understanding of what made the British Empire both great in its achievements and vulnerable to its eventual downfall.

Fall Of The British Empire. Eine Verkettung unglücklicher Umstände oder theoretisch erklärbar?:1. Auflage. Philipp Freund
The sudden rise and fall of Great Britain should not have come as a surprise to those few persons who study the increase and fall of empires, and they are acquainted with the lands which, in every single case, have caused their dissolution. No writer who controls a heart can, however, afford to go through the fall of Britain merely with all the eye with the moralist or perhaps the calm historian. I would, therefore, remind my listeners of the wealth which the British Empire enjoyed in her quest to conquer the world and the profound regret she felt that made it impossible to transmit her Navy towards the Far West. The Great Britain´s geopolitical role has undergone many changes in the last four centuries. Previously a maritime superpower and conqueror of half the globe, Britain now occupies an isolated place just as one economically fragile island often at odds with her ex-European neighbors. In The Rise and Fall of the British Empire, I wrote an intensive, perceptive, and insightful history of the British Empire. Crossing centuries from 1600 to our contemporary time. This critically acclaimed book consolidates comprehensive scholarship with listenable popular history. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jim D Johnston.
