Originally published: 2016
This volume brings to life one of the most extraordinary periods in modern history. The 1850s was a decade of breathtaking transformation, with striking parallels for our own times. The world was reshaped by technology, trade, mass migration and war. The global economy expanded fivefold, millions of families emigrated to the ends of the earth to carve out new lives, technology revolutionised communications, while steamships and railways cut across vast continents and oceans, shrinking the world and creating the first global age.

Book:Empire of the deep, the rise and fall of the British Navy:2014
Author: Wilson, Ben
Year: 2014
Language: English
Type: Book
Publisher: Phoenix
Physical or Electronic: Physical
Note: Originally published: London: Weidenfeld & Nicolson, 2013 The story of our navy is nothing less than the story of Britain, our culture and our empire. Much more than a parade of admirals and their battles, this is the story of how an insignificant island nation conquered the world's oceans to become its greatest trading empire. Yet, as Ben Wilson shows, there was nothing inevitable about this rise to maritime domination, nor was it ever an easy path.
