The Web of Empire

Alison Games (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on Ireland in the 1650s, illustrating England's new commitment to brute force (expressed through a new standing army and expanded navy) and to forced migration around the Atlantic as a strategy for colonial success and national power. This imperial reshuffling of people linked Britain, Ireland, the Caribbean, and North America, and exposed the government's new vision of a more centralized empire devised in the wake of several decades of private enterprise.

Keywords:   British Empire, England, English government, forced migration, colonization, territorial expansion
