This is the story of the age of empire, the imperial rivalries of the great powers and the effects- for good and ill – on those countries which were colonised. Africa, Australasia and India of course figure prominently in the story. China and Japan, ancient civilisations for long a closed book to the west but now being opened up, also feature. In addition the United States went through a bloody civil war but recovered to step for the first time onto the world stage.

Tutor – John Stevens
A lawyer by profession until my retirement in 2013, I have a lifelong interest in history and an enthusiasm to communicate and share this interest by both the spoken and written word.
My interests are wide and include in particular the Stuart era in Britain and nineteenth century English and European political history.
I have also published work, and lectured on, aspects of Bristol history in the period 1800-1850.
