Unseen Hand in British History - Ian D. Colvin



This book is a sequel to the author's 'Germans' in England, which covered the rise of the 'Merchant Adventurers' and their struggles against the Hansa' trading monopoly. It follows the British Merchant leagues in their struggles with the Stuart kings during the Civil War and Restoration periods, and covers the rise of the British Empire under the early Hanoverian kings. The author takes a sympathetic view of British trading companies, and provides many insights into the rise of the cabal that nearly conquered all the world under the cloak of British patriotism.
