Timelines of British Political, Social and Economic History; Julius Caesar to Queen Elizabeth II
Timelines of British Political, Social and Economic History; Julius Caesar to Queen Elizabeth II, sets out to demystify the complexities of how England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland became Great Britain and to provide salient facts of the two-thousand years history.
This book is a useful text for students and teachers of political, social and economic history of the United Kingdom.
England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland merged to become the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland in 1800 (enacted in 1801), and then the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland in 1921, when Ireland became independent. Southern Ireland was changed to Eire in 1937, then to the Republic of Ireland in 1948, when she withdrew from the Commonwealth.
The book also covers the Industrial Revolution, and the growth and decline of the British Empire.
The book is written in easy-to-understand language, and avoids falling into the trap of drowning the reader in too much detail, yet providing enough information to keep interest alive.
The author writes not as a historian but as one who is interested in history and he hopes that you enjoy reading this book and that it will stimulate you to further your own research of the country we call Britain.
