Empire Lost

Original Synopsis

"Empire Lost has a total of 238 pages which are papers from writer 'Andrew Stewart'. Using government records, private letters and diaries and contemporary media sources, this book examines the key themes affecting the relationship between Britain and the Dominions during the Second World War, the Empire's last great conflict. It asks why this political and military coalition was ultimately successful in overcoming the challenge of the Axis powers but, in the process, proved unable to preserve itself. Although these changes were inevitable the manner of the evolution was sometimes painful, as Britain's wartime economic decline left its political position exposed in a changing post-war international system. 2008-11-18 time of publication of the book, [-A&C Black-]"

Griffith Review 59

Original Synopsis

"Griffith Review 59 has a total of 264 pages which are papers from writer 'Julianne Schultz, Jane Camens'. At the Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast in April, athletes from countries that were once a part of the British Empire will battle for gold—but is the Commonwealth of Nations more than a legacy of another age? At a time of geopolitical uncertainty, the Commonwealth is poised to play a major role as a values-based network that represents a third of the world’s population. Whether this group can exercise real power and influence will be determined in 2018. The old empires are long gone, but in the wake of Brexit and the rise of China and India, the shape of a new world order remains unclear. Commonwealth Now features writers from around the world who explore the contemporary experience of Commonwealth citizens: reconciling the past, confronting new challenges, and opening new exchanges to create a sustainable and equitable future. ‘Griffith Review is the leading Australian literary forum for current affairs, culture and ideas.’ New York Review of Books ‘[A] rich and enlightening and often surprising collection.’ Australian ‘This is commentary of the highest order. The prose is unfailingly polished; the knowledge and expertise of the writers impressive.’ Sydney Morning Herald 2018-01-29 time of publication of the book, [-Text Publishing-]"

The Decline And Fall Of The British Empire

Original Synopsis

"The Decline And Fall Of The British Empire has a total of 816 pages which are papers from writer 'Piers Brendon'. No empire has been larger or more diverse than the British Empire. At its apogee in the 1930s, 42 million Britons governed 500 million foreign subjects. Britannia ruled the waves and a quarter of the earth's surface was painted red on the map. Yet no empire (except the Russian) disappeared more swiftly. Within a generation this mighty structure collapsed, often amid bloodshed, leaving behind a scatter of sea-girt dependencies and a ghost of an empire, the Commonwealth, overshadowed by Imperial America. It left a contested legacy: at best a sporting spirit, a legal code and a near-universal language; at worst, failed states and internecine strife. Full of vivid particulars, brief lives, telling anecdotes, comic episodes, symbolic moments and illustrative vignettes, The Decline and Fall of the British Empire is popular history at its scholarly best. 2010-07-06 time of publication of the book, [-Random House-]"

Empire of Scholars

Original Synopsis

"Empire of Scholars has a total of 258 pages which are papers from writer 'Tamson Pietsch'. At the start of the twenty-first century we are acutely conscious that universities operate within an entangled world of international scholarly connection. Now available in paperback, Empire of scholars examines the networks that linked academics across the colonial world in the age of ‘Victorian’ globalization. Stretching across the globe, these networks helped map the boundaries of an expansive but exclusionary ‘British academic world’ that extended beyond the borders of the British Isles. Drawing on extensive archival research conducted in the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa, this book remaps the intellectual geographies of Britain and its empire. In doing so, it provides a new context for writing the history of ideas and offers a critical analysis of the connections that helped fashion the global world of universities today. 2015-01-06 time of publication of the book, [-Oxford University Press-]"

The Commonwealth

Original Synopsis

"The Commonwealth has a total of 254 pages which are papers from writer 'Patricia M. Larby'. The modern British Commonwealth, linking fifty countries around the world in voluntary association, cooperation, and consultation, is a unique body in world history. The area of its member countries covers a third of the globe and collectively their peoples represent a quarter of the world's total population. Though essentially different from the British Empire from which it originated, the Commonwealth shares many common historical ties with Britain. Patricia M. Larby and Harry Hannam have assembled an unrivaled body of literature to illustrate the growth of the Empire into the Commonwealth. This extensive bibliography identifies, lists, and annotates the most important publications on the development and growth of the Commonwealth; its present status and functions; and its role in education, literature, sport, and the arts and sciences. It includes its historical origins: its cooperation in economics, politics, and international issues such as the environment; and its many spheres of professional activity including medicine, law, and architecture. Strong emphasis is placed on the role of the English language in the Commonwealth and as a medium for creative literature in many disparate cultures worldwide. "The Commonwealth "appears at a time when this unique organization is on the threshold of a new era in its history. The proposals emerging from the 1991 Commonwealth Heads of Government meeting include statements on democracy and human rights; environmental affairs; and global concerns such as international crime, drug abuse, and AIDS. No previous comprehensive bibliography of the Commonwealth exists, and this volume fills a long-standing gap in the bibliographical coverage. It will be an essential reference source for libraries and scholars involved in Commonwealth studies and will be of particular interest to historians, political scientists, economists, and educators. 1993-01-01 time of publication of the book, [-Transaction Publishers-]"

The British Empire and Commonwealth

Original Synopsis

"The British Empire and Commonwealth has a total of 197 pages which are papers from writer 'Martin Kitchen'. From its modest beginnings as marginal scraps of territory in America and the Caribbean to its recent disappearance, the British Empire was an extraordinary and paradoxical entity. North America, Africa, South and Southeast Asia and Australasia and innumerable small islands and territories have been fundamentally shaped--economically, socially and politically--by a nation whose imperial drive came from a bewildering mixture of rapacity and moral zeal, of high-mindedness and viciousness, of strategic cunning and feckless neglect. The relative indifference and ease with which Britain finally divested itself of Empire in the 1950s, when compared to the ferocity and enterprise shown in its acquisition over the previous four centuries, suggests a quite baffling sea-change in the British psyche. 1996 time of publication of the book, [-Palgrave Macmillan-]"

"East of Suez and the Commonwealth 1964-1971: East of Suez has a total of 621 pages which are papers from writer 'S. R. Ashton, University of London. Institute of Commonwealth Studies'. The main purpose of the British Documents on the End of Empire Project (BDEEP) is to publish documents from British official archives on the ending of colonial rule and the context in which this took place.
