Abstract:

This book combines the large-scale, panoramic and global, with the small-scale, the individual, and the particular. At one level, it is a macro-narrative of some of the constraints and crises that Britain confronted during the quarter millennium that made it the world's foremost power, and what followed from there both as regards its own peoples, and for other peoples. At another level, this book is an exploration of micro-narratives produced by just some of the very many English, Welsh, Scottish, and Irish men and women who got caught and caught out because of this power's amalgam of incessant extroversion and aggression.-Introd.
