9780300152807: Britons: Forging the Nation 1707-1837; Revised Edition

How was Great Britain made? And what does it mean to be British? This brilliant and seminal book examines how a more cohesive British nation was invented after 1707 and how this new national identity was nurtured through war, religion, trade, and empire. Lavishly illustrated and powerful, Britons remains a major contribution to our understanding of Britain’s past, and continues to influence ongoing controversies about this polity’s survival and future. This edition contains an extensive new preface by the author.

 

A sweeping survey, . . . evocatively illustrated and engagingly written.” Harriet Ritvo, New York Times Book Review

 

Challenging, fascinating, enormously well informed.” John Barrell, London Review of Books

 

Linda Colley writes with clarity and grace...Her stimulating book will be, and deserves to be influential” E. P. Thompson, Dissent

 

Linda Colley is Shelby M. C. Davis 1958 Professor of History at Princeton University.


Winner of the Wolfson History Prize

From Library Journal :

During the 120 years covered by this book, the Scots, Welsh, English, and to some extent the Irish began to think of themselves as Britons. Many forces combined to create this new identity in the minds of these people. One of the most important was the almost-constant warfare against France, and hence the need for protected shipping made British identity an economic advantage for the Scots. Fear of invasion and the need for soldiers helped expand the roles of ordinary men and women and at the same time increased their feelings of patriotism. Colley has reinterpreted some old theories and offers evidence to support her views. She also shows that some changes that seem to have been sudden actually were part of the logical progression of these early movements. Recommended for academic and large public libraries.
