"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
An economic history of West Africa by A. G Hopkins( Book )

This book is the first work to offer a comprehensive account of the economic history of the huge area conventionally known as West Africa, including the former French territories as well as those colonised by the British. Ranging from prehistoric times to independence, the book presents an argument, based on the concept of the market, that criticises many conventional beliefs about econmic backwardness and advances an alternative set of explanations which takes into account, and contributes to, the latest studies in the fields of history, economics, anthropology and geography
British imperialism, 1688-2000 by P. J Cain( Book )

36 editions published between 1993 and 2016 in English and Japanese and held by 540 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The milestone in the understanding of British history and imperialism, this important book radically reinterprets the course of modern economic development and the causes of overseas expansion during the past three centuries. Employing their concept of gentlemanly capitalism, the authors draw imperial and domestic British history together to show how the shape of the nation and its economy depended on international and imperial ties, and how these ties were undone to produce the postcolonial world of today." "This second edition, issued for the first time in a single volume, has two new chapters; a Foreword assesses the development of the debate since the book's original publication; an Afterword discusses the imperial era in the context of the current controversy over globalization, and shows how the study of the age of empires remains relevant to understanding the postcolonial world."--Jacket
