Geopolitics and Imperialism: the British Empire and Halford Mackinder 1890-1940
It was perhaps no coincidence that Halford Mackinder, the most famous exponent of geopolitical theory, wrote his seminal essay in 1904 when British world power seemed on the verge of a secular crisis. This lecture examines how far the insights contained in Mackinder's four major works explain the geopolitical fortunes of the British world system in its age of blood and iron.

Ni-Superalloy, heat treated above gamma-prime solvus
This micrograph shows a high magnification image of The morphology of γ' is discernible as grey 'blocky' precipitates, approximately 2μm in diameter. The small white particles present, due to their atomic contrast visible in back-scattered mode, are discernable as MC carbides. View schematic diagram of γ' microstructure

Ni-Superalloy, heat treated above gamma-prime solvus
Micrograph shows a close up of the secondary γ' present within the centre of γ grains. This form of γ' grows with prolonged exposure to temperature and forms the blocky primary γ' found on the grain boundaries. View schematic diagram of γ' microstructure

Ni-Superalloy, heat treated above gamma-prime solvus
Micrograph shows a microstructure now devoid of γ' as at this temperature it has become fully dissolved into the matrix. This results in grain growth, partly due to the solution of γ' into the γ matrix and also because the main mechanism for preventing grain growth, namely the primary γ' is no longer present. Carbide phases still exist and act in places to inhibit grain boundary motion and therefore grain growth. View schematic diagram of γ' microstructure

1.1 The role of writers in British society
Sunset Song was written in the early 1930s and is still one of the best-known and most-debated Scottish novels. In this unit, we discuss whether Sunset Song succeeds as critique of capitalism and whether it has value as a work of literature separate from its propagandistic ambitions.
