To Lose an Empire

British Strategy and Foreign Policy, 1758–90

Jeremy Black

‘In the mid-18th century, Britain was in a battle for survival and very much saw itself in that light’: Jeremy Black offers a study of the period 1758 to 1790, emphasizing the uncertainties and insecurities of British foreign policy. Looking first to the struggle in North America, the book then examines how the conflict across the Atlantic changed the geopolitics of empire, with Britain’s interests shifting eastward to India, Malaysia, Australian and China.
