of the Course: This course will trace the most important developments in
British history over the last two hundred years. These include the creation
of a multi-national British state and the tensions this state has experienced,
the rise and fall of Britain's world influence--primarily through the instrument
of the British Empire, the rapid commercial and industrial growth that made
Britain a world economic leader for much of the 19th century, the constant transformation
of British social organization, and, finally, the democratization of British
politics. This course is not to be confused with History 399: The
British Empire (which does not deal much with what actually happened in
Britain itself) or History 345: Mid-Victorian Britain in History and Literature
(which focuses exclusively on the period between 1851 and 1867).
