The late eighteenth century saw the beginning of revolutionary political, economic and cultural change that marked the emergence of modern nation states and cultures. France was site of the first modern political and social revolution, and came to dominate Europe under the leadership of Napoleon. Britain was transformed by war, industrial revolution and the development of a global empire. This unit takes a comparative history approach to studying key aspects of the emergence of Britain and France as modern imperial powers.
