Античное наследие в политической и колониальной практике Британской империи: У. Митфорд как идеолог «Нового империализма»

Скворцов А. М., Кондрашук Р. А.

This article is about historiography. The main point of it is to show the influence of Mitford’s political views on content of his work. The range of different typical stories from Athens history of V-th century BC were considered, for example struggle of two political forces of that time, which Mitford named “aristoctatical party ” and “democratical party ”. We could say that English historian extrapolates the political system of his day Britain at that time Athens. Therefore Mitford didn’t disguise his sympathies to aristocrat Kimon’s politicalforce, because he was torie. Foreign policy of Athens was also considered in this article, especially creation of Delian League and its ambitions, which were supported by Mitford, because Britain had already started new phase of their colonization.
