This course will examine the growth and development of the largest empire in world history—the British Empire—beginning with the late fifteenth century Tudor dynasty in England and ending with the death of the Queen-Empress Victoria in 1901. By the beginning of the twentieth century, there were very few countries or people who had not been affected, one way or another, by the impact of the British.

Ruling Minds : Psychology in the British Empire
by Erik Linstrum
English | 2016 | ISBN: 0674088662 | 320 Pages | PDF | 14.3 MB

Less than 100 years ago, the British ruled a quarter of the planet and one in five of the global population. Once, people were proud to call themselves imperialists, but now, to many, that seems like a badge of shame. In this Timewatch guide, David Olusoga examines not whether the British Empire was a force for good or ill, but rather how it has been portrayed on British television over the last 70 years. Drawing on decades of the documentary series Timewatch, plus many other gems from the BBC archive, David sees how Britain's Caribbean colonies grew rich on slave labour, how chaos gripped India post independence, and how Africa was plundered for her mineral wealth.
