  British History
For this history guide, we shall divide the period of British history into four main chunks, and each of these four main chunks then subdivided into bite sized chapters that try to explain the way that things happened
History is an interweaving of events and people, and its not just about kings and queens, its about ordinary people and how events influenced them, and on occasions how they influenced events.
Also one has to realise that Britain is not one nation, but a hodge podge of different peoples who tend to remain distinct in spite of a millenium or more of intermarriage.

  Economic History of Great Britain
Britain, in as sense, continued to adhere to the Cobdenite notion that informal colonialism was preferable — the established consensus among industrial capitalists during the age of Pax Britannica between the downfall of Napoleon and the Franco-Prussian War.
Britain, the forerunner of Europe's capitalist powers, however, was clearly the chief world investor, though the direction of its investments underwent a striking change, becoming oriented less toward Europe, the United States, and India, and more toward the rest of the Commonwealth and Latin America.
Britain was even growing incapable of dominating the markets of India — a crown colony by 1858 that Disraeli would later deem "the brightest jewel of the crown" —, Manchu China, the coasts of Africa, and Latin America.

 EIPS - The Source of Britain's Greatness – and the Cause of her Decline
To understand it, the history of Britain needs to be recognised in its true light as predominantly a struggle for freedom and independence from the Papacy and its persecution of the Bible and Bible believers.
When Britain signed the Treaty of Rome, she subscribed to a second Counter-Reformation in economic disguise; she took a first constitutional step aside from her Biblical Protestant heritage and began an association with a traditional historical enemy which could prove to be her undoing if she does not wake up and act in time.
History has vindicated the view that Britain's abandonment of God's Law has largely been the fruit of her rapprochement with the Church of Rome, which is the one instrument that has consistently attempted to destroy the principles of Biblical Protestantism and with it Britain's national greatness and independence.
