British Empire – Resources

In class ( both 13 LK and GK) we are about to talk about the British Empire.

The texts I will use in class are excerpts from these web sites:

( History of Empire, its origin, theories)

(the role of planations for the economy of the Empire)

(about an important aspect of technology)

(about the importance of transport, especially ships)

(various aspects, especially about the end of the Empire)

(an interview with a popular Indian author about the British opium trade)

And here is a additional site I strongly recommend to you: The BBC’s new history pages on the web. Use this link to go to the BBC’s  site about the end of the Empire.
