The subtitle "From Empire to Commonwealth, 1901-Present" frames this course in modern British history. The growth of England to its greatest power and its ultimate decline took place in the twentieth century. Professor Judd's deep knowledge of this exciting time in English history keeps the listener thoroughly connected to this fascinating series of lectures. The use of a second voice to introduce chapters and student questions helps to break up the sometimes weighty material. Recorded Books also offers library borrowers a free study guide if it has gotten lost--a nice touch. This is for lovers of British history and Anglophiles of all stripes and for people concerned about where the U.S. may be headed as our superpower status begins to wane.
