HIS 331 History of Britain II

This course examines the history of Britain from the “Glorious Revolution” of 1688 to the present.  During this period Britain became the modern world’s first superpower with a colonial empire that spanned the globe and an industrialized economy that dominated world trade.  Although Britain lost both its empire and its economic power in the 20th Century, it has retained a cultural significance out of proportion to its size.  We will try to understand Britain’s dramatic rise and fall by examining political, social, economic, and cultural developments over time.
