Wilson Ø 7 Download Read & Download After the Victorians The Decline of Britain in the World The distinguished historian AN Wilson has charted in vivid detail Britain's rise to world dominance a tale of how one small island nation came to be the mightiest richest country on earth reigning over much of the globe Now in his much anticipated seuel to the classic The Victorians he describes how in little than a generation Britain's power and influence in the world would virtually dissolveIn After the Victorians Wilson presents a panoramic view of an era stretching from the death of ueen Victoria in 1901 to the dawn of the cold war in the early 1950s He off. This book looks at the history of Britain from the turn of the 20th century until the 1950s through the eyes of famous people who lived through this period The book is well written and well researched and covers periods of time not usually looked at in the same publication However the author never makes a persuasive case as to why he has covered this period He says in the subtitle that he will be looking at Britain s decline and loss of empire but this story doesn t seem integral to the book His most interesting conclusion is that while empires embraced diversity always imperfectly but they found ways to accommodate it nationalist nation states usually ended up denying basic rights to people who were not part of the majority population While this is interesting and probably true Britain isn t the most stunning example of this phenomenon so I was a little confused as to where he was going with the argument

The decline of Britain and loss of empire is a well covered topic in Britain at least This outing might have a desultory or depressive air but again Wilson brings an acute perception to a range of political and social issues and opens up new ways to interpret the record The social dynamic is particularly well done and should make the book available to readers who could be uninterested in major political or strategic histories
