Bowker Data Service Summary
Tristan Marshall examines how the idea of a United Kingdom was first created. He studies the political language of the King's project to replace England, Scotland and Wales with a single kingdom of Great Britain, and the representations on stage.
Main Description
This book looks at the genesis of the British national identity in the reign of King James I and VI. While devolution is currently decentralizing Britain, this book examines how the idea of a united kingdom was created in the first place. It does this by studying both the political language of the King's project to replace England, Scotland, and Wales with a single kingdom of Great Britain and the cultural representations of empire on the public and private stages.
