(p.27) Chapter 2 England
Culture and Management in the Americas
Stanford University Press

Despite being part of an island, England is not culturally insular. Christianity was always mostly a French concern, Institutional specificities, so different from those in Portugal, Spain, and Italy, may account for the different patterns of social and business culture between Anglo-Saxon America and the rest of the New World. This chapter examines such differences by focusing on the history of England. It first looks at England under France and then discusses the Black Death pandemic that wiped out at least a third of the European population between 1347 and 1348, England during the seventeenth century, the revolution of 1648–1657, the Habeas Corpus Act of 1679, the emergence of Britain as a global power, and the curbing of French absolutism in England.

Keywords:   England, France, absolutism, Black Death, revolution, Habeas Corpus Act, Christianity, culture, New World
