Bengal: The British Bridgehead by Prof. P. J. Marshall
Book DescriptionThe aim of Bengal: The British Bridgehead is to explain how, in the eighteenth century, Britain established her rule in eastern India, the first part of the subcontinent to be incorporated into the British Empire. Though the British were not in firm control of Bengal, Bihar and Orissa until 1765, to illustrate the circumstances in which they gained power and elucidate the Indian inheritance that so powerfully shaped the early years of their rule, professor Marshall begins his analysis around 1740 with the reign of Alivardi Khan, the last effective Mughal ruler of eastern India. He then explores the social, cultural and economic changes that followed the imposition of foreign rule and seeks to assess the consequences for the peoples of the region; emphasis is given throughout as much to continuities rooted deep in the history of Bengal as to the more obvious effects of British domination. The volume closes in the 1820s when, with British rule firmly established, a new pattern of cultural and economic relations was developing between Britain and eastern India.

Writings and Speeches of Edmund Burke, Hardback (October 2015)
This volume is the last of three Party and Parliament volumes of the Writings and Speeches of Edmund Burke, which ranges in subject matter from following Burke through from the last phases of the American War to the controversies over the French Revolution, which drove a rift between Burke and Charles Fox, the leader of his party.
Remaking the British Atlantic, Paperback (February 2015)
P. J. Marshall focuses on a crucial phase in the history of British-American relations: the first ten years of American Independence. Neither the trauma of war nor the failure to create harmonious political relations prevented the re-establishment of the very close links that had spanned the pre-war Atlantic.
