Course Description: This course is a survey of the history of Great Britain from the Revolution of 1688 to the government of Gordon Brown. Its main purpose is to understand from a historical perspective how Britain and the British came to be the way they are at present-economy, society, politics, and culture. Britain today is a multi-national state that once included, though it does not now, all of the peoples o the British Isles. Therefore, the course deals with the Scots, Irish, and Welsh, as well as the English. The main themes of the course are the rise and fall of British power and influence; the expansion of English power within the British Isles; the formation of the United Kingdom of Great Britain; the transformation of a traditional society; the rise and decline of British industrial power; and the development of a class society. Text: Thomas William Heyck and Meredith Veldman, THE PEOPLES OF THE BRITISH ISLES: A NEW HISTORY. Assessment: attendance (40%) and a midterm and final exam (60%).
