Britain and the World
Edited by The British Scholar Society Britain's influence on the world was profound and far-reaching, touching every continent and subject, from Africa to South America and archaeology to zoology. From the sixteenth century onward, the histories of Britain and the world became increasingly interrelated. Yet mainstream British history is still prone to neglect the world's influence upon domestic developments, and British overseas history to a considerable extent remains dominated by the study of the British Empire. This series takes a broader approach to Britain and the world history, from the sixteenth century to the present day, seeking to investigate the extent of Britain's influence on the world, and on the world's influence on Britain.
