British imperialism : innovation and expansion, 1688-1914 by P. J Cain( Book )

49 editions published between 1993 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,487 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The system even survived World War II, though Britain was now dependent on the United States. The sterling area played an important part in Britain's postwar recovery, and the empire was rallied to the cause of reconstruction. When the empire did begin to fall apart, it was not simply because it could no longer be controlled but also because it had served its purpose. Even as it sank, the City had found a new role, though an uncertain one, in a new financial world order functioning on a scale far greater than that encompassed by nation states or empires."--Jacket
