Timeline of the British Empire
British raj , period of direct British rule over the Indian subcontinent from until the independence of India and Pakistan in The raj succeeded management of the subcontinent by the British East India Company , after general distrust and dissatisfaction with company leadership resulted in a widespread mutiny of sepoy troops in , causing the British to reconsider the structure of governance in India. The raj was intended to increase Indian participation in governance, but the powerlessness of Indians to determine their own future without the consent of the British led to an increasingly adamant national independence movement. Though trade with India had been highly valued by Europeans since ancient times, the long route between them was subject to many potential obstacles and obfuscations from middlemen, making trade unsafe, unreliable, and expensive. This was especially true after the collapse of the Mongol empire and the rise of the Ottoman Empire all but blocked the ancient Silk Road. As Europeans, led by the Portuguese, began to explore maritime navigation routes to bypass middlemen, the distance of the venture required merchants to set up fortified posts.
One common feature of European empires was the prominence of trade between the colonies and imperial power. This resulted in a pattern of specialisation whereby the colonies exported mainly primary products and imported mainly manufactures. The imperial powers encouraged this specialisation, which simultaneously benefited their consumers of primary products, producers of manufactures, and investors in colonial plantations and mines see e. Accordingly, in the colony, this likely benefited consumers of manufactured products, and producers of primary products. From the colonies, however, two additional questions arise: did colonial trade limit industrial growth in the colonies? And did it reduce the colonies demand for independence, by making them dependent on trade with the imperial power? We exploit the exogenous collapse in trade generated by World War I — which, as shown in Figure 1, more than halved Indian imports from Britain in real terms — to show that districts exposed to a greater decrease in imports from the UK experienced faster industrial employment growth in , placing them on a higher level of industrialisation which is visible to these days
The region was sometimes called the Indian Empire , though not officially. As "India", it was a founding member of the League of Nations , a participating nation in the Summer Olympics in , , , , and , and a founding member of the United Nations in San Francisco in This system of governance was instituted on 28 June , when, after the Indian Rebellion of , the rule of the British East India Company was transferred to the Crown in the person of Queen Victoria  who, in , was proclaimed Empress of India.

From Empire to Independence: The British Raj in India 1858-1947
The British Empire is remembered for its extensive, long-lasting and far-reaching imperial activities that ushered in an era of globalisation and connectivity. The British Empire began in its formative years in the sixteenth century and flourished and grew dramatically, lasting until the twentieth century. Cabot managed to reach the coast of Newfoundland and believed he had made it as far as Asia. Whilst he perished during the journey, the other vessel was successful in creating a trade agreement with Russia. Sir Frances Drake.
Soon after the defeat of the Spanish Armada in , London merchants presented a petition to Queen Elizabeth I for permission to sail to the Indian Ocean. Permission was granted and in , three ships sailed from Torbay around the Cape of Good Hope to the Arabian Sea on one of the earliest English overseas Indian expeditions. In , three more ships sailed east but were all lost at sea. In , another group of merchants that eventually became known as the Adventurers stated their intention to sail to the East Indies and applied to the Queen for support of the project. The Adventurers convened again a year later. For 15 years the charter awarded the newly formed company a monopoly on trade with all countries east of the Cape of Good Hope and west of the Straits of Magellan. Between and , four voyages left Britain to establish trade with East Indies.

И одновременно пустит АНБ ко дну. Сьюзан внезапно подумала, что Хейл, возможно, говорит правду, но потом прогнала эту мысль. Нет, решила .
Она бесхитростна и целеустремленна, и когда достигнет своей цели, то скорее всего совершит цифровое самоубийство. - Джабба театральным жестом указал на громадный экран.
Коммандер, - сказала. - Это еще не конец. Мы еще не проиграли. Если Дэвид успеет найти кольцо, мы спасем банк данных. Стратмор ничего не. - Позвоните в банк данных! - приказала Сьюзан.
Он уже не один раз обжигался, когда полицейские чиновники выдавали себя за похотливых туристов. Я хотел бы с ней покувыркаться. Ролдан сразу решил, что это подстава. Если он скажет да, его подвергнут большому штрафу, да к тому же заставят предоставить одну из лучших сопровождающих полицейскому комиссару на весь уик-энд за здорово живешь. Когда Ролдан заговорил, голос его звучал уже не так любезно, как прежде: - Сэр, это Агентство услуг сопровождения Белен.
Потом, всего через несколько секунд, он должен был включить основные генераторы, и сразу же восстановились бы все функции дверных электронных замков, заработали фреоновые охладители и ТРАНСТЕКСТ оказался бы в полной безопасности. Но, приближаясь к рубильнику, Стратмор понял, что ему необходимо преодолеть еще одно препятствие - тело Чатрукьяна на ребрах охлаждения генератора. Вырубить электропитание и снова его включить значило лишь вызвать повторное замыкание. Труп надо передвинуть. Стратмор медленно приближался к застывшему в гротескной лозе телу, не сводя с него глаз. Он схватил убитого за запястье; кожа была похожа на обгоревший пенопласт, тело полностью обезвожено.
- Тебе удалось стереть электронную почту Хейла. - Нет, - сконфуженно ответила. - Ты нашла ключ. Сьюзан покачала головой. Стратмор наморщил лоб и прикусил губу.
