Indeed, an overview of British expansion might well suggest that it was an entirely haphazard, uncertain and discontinuous process, played out in fardistant and unconnected parts of the world. But although the acquisition of individual territories or possessions can often be explained by the fortunes of war, quirks of fate, or the rogue actions of a ‘man on the spot’, the steady establishment of a global empire implies the existence of deeper, strong-running causal currents. Two particularly strong currents were to be found in the long-term and reasonably consistent application of metropolitan resources to overseas activity, and in the creation of a set of common attitudes and assumptions among Britons everywhere.
This served to impose some basic coherence and order upon an otherwise fragmented empire, and also helped to bind overseas territories to the imperial core and metropolitan society. Indeed, the unsuccessful attempts to redefine Britain’s relationship with her American colonies during the 1760s and 1770s underscored the point that the Atlantic empire could be better sustained and exploited through the development of informal ties and associations than it ever could be by heavy-handed assertions of metropolitan authority that could not be backed by force.
