Sample text

A united and federal India would have been Labour’s ideal outcome of independence; British strategic requirements for access to bases, airfields and manpower would thus be secured. Hence, in 1946 a Labour Cabinet Minister, Sir Stafford Cripps, proposed a federation of the Indian provinces in which foreign affairs, defence, communications and finance would be controlled by the federal centre. The proposals soon proved unworkable prin­ cipally because the League feared that Congress sought a more centralised constitution in which the Muslim voice would be muffled.

Between 1945 and 1965 alone the population under British rule diminished over one hundred times from 700 to 5 million (Louis, 1999). In the early twenty-first century there were just 200,000 inhabitants of the British Empire, whose components had been re-styled ‘Overseas Territories’. The empire shattered into a set of new, independent nation-states, most of whom found a new relationship of legal equality with Britain within the Commonwealth. In 1973 Britain entered the European Economic Com­mun­ity (later styled European Union), signposting the end of imperial grandeur.

Metropolitan crises induced by wartime debt in the 1920s and world slump in the 1930s were exacerbated by the combined onslaught from Germany, Italy and Japan between 1939 and 1945 (Darwin, 2007). Britain in contrast to other European imperial powers, such as France, was undefeated in Europe. None the less, the economic costs of total war were apparently too great for Britain to remain a great power in the post-war world. The British war effort had been dependent on massive loans from the United States and the liquidation of overseas assets.
