Promotional Information

"Lively, well-informed, up-to-date with recently published research, accessible to undergraduates, and mercifully jargon free." - Grayson Ditchfield, University of Kent, UK "A tremendously important book." - James Sack, University of Illinois at Chicago, USA "A lovely read, flows extremely clearly, and synthesises a massive volume of recent literature as well as making a very cogent argument." - Emma Macleod, University of Stirling, UK

About the Author

Anthony Page is Senior Lecturer in European History at the University of Tasmania, Australia.


"Book focuses on what he terms the 'Seventy Years War', an almost-continuous series of conflicts between Britain and (mostly) France, which started with the shambolic response to the Jacobite rebellion and culminated in the triumph of Waterloo, paving the way for a century of imperial dominance under the Pax Britannica. ... Given the focus on war, this is necessarily an international account of British history. ... new book makes a striking claim for the continued relevance of Georgian Britain." (Matthew McCormack, The Journal of the Historical Association, October, 2016)

"The prose is clear and readable, the analysis is enlivened with well-chosen examples, and Page offers much helpful contextual material. ... the book will be valuable to researchers and teachers who will find here a scholarly, up-to-date introduction to the "war and society" theme in eighteenth-century British history." (John Shovlin, Journal of British Studies, Vol. 55 (1), January, 2016)
