Riassunto: Volume Five of this series covers 1689 to 1763.
This book tells you how Britain built up a huge Empire overseas: in India, Canada and North America. Many battles were fought to win the territory, and colonial trade brought English merchants great prosperity.
You can read how the early colonists went about building a settlement, and why, at the end of the reign of George II, they were beginning to pull against their ties with the Mother Country.
The book also covers the main events in Britain during the period up to 1763: the Jacobite rebellions, the Churchills' rise and fall, advances in science and medicine, and also the more gradual changes.
By the middle of the 18th century, the Industrial Revolution had dawned. Agriculture had become more efficient, and many people had to leave the land for the towns. There they found beautiful Georgian houses, but also slums and the first factories.
Other topics dealt with in detail in the book include: the Church, the army and the navy, fashion, the arts, travel and transport, sports and games and domestic life.
Each chapter is beautifully illustrated in full colour.
