Empire and Others by M. J. Daunton

Book Description

Much has been written about the forging of a British identity in the 17th and 18th centuries, from the multiple kingdoms of England, Scotland and Ireland. But the process also ran across the Irish sea and was played out in North America and the Caribbean. In the process, the indigenous peoples of North America, the Caribbean, the Cape, Australia and New Zealand were forced to redefine their identities. This text integrates the history of these areas with British and imperial history. With contributions from both sides of the Atlantic, each chapter deals with a different aspect of British encounters with indigenous peoples in Colonial America and includes, for example, sections on "Native Americans and Early Modern Concepts of Race" and "Hunting and the Politics of Masculinity in Cherokee treaty-making, 1763-1775". This book should be of particular interest to postgraduate students of Colonial American history and early modern British history.

Progress and Poverty by M. J. Daunton Progress and Poverty, Paperback (June 1995)

In 1700, Britain was a rural country. By 1850, the year before the Great Exhibition, it was 'the workshop of the world'. This book examines this change, the creation of national markets, and the economic growth which characterized the movement from agriculture to industry. It is useful for anyone studying 18th and 19th century British history.
