Disciplining The Empire 8211 Politic
Politics, Governance, And The Rise Of The British Navy
de Sarah Kinkel
Sobre o livro
Sarah Kinkel shows that the rise of British naval power was neither inevitable nor unquestioned: it was the outcome of fierce battles over the shape of Britain's empire and the bonds of political authority. The Navy was one of many battlefields where British subjects debated whether the empire would be ruled from Parliament down or the people up.
