History 151C: The Peculiar Modernity of Britain, 1848-2000 (Fall 2011)

Course Description

In this course, Prof. James Vernon gives 20 video lectures on The Peculiar Modernity of Britain, 1848-2000. For many years, Britain was seen as the crucible of the modern world. This small, cold, and wet island was thought to have been the first to develop representative democracy, an industrial economy, rapid transport, mass cities, mass communication and mass culture, and, of course, an empire upon which the sun famously never set.
