Starr wrote. "Shipping increased in frequency, speed, and dependability; postal communication was established on a more regular and reliable basis; the flow of consumer goods from England rose; and the column of information communicated in books and periodicals grew. These developments put the colonies in closer touch with London's metropolitan culture, allowing them to become, in some respects more English than they had before."

This Quote displays how much communication has benefited the world. People began to communicate more when shipping was established. Not just Americas to Americas but Americas to England. This communication has led to along line of increasing communicatinon around the world such as postal services. This benefited people because they also came in contact with more things such as food, clothes, and just communication in general.

You have chosen a good quote.

What was the result of the increased flow of information between this "metropolitan center" and the colonies? What does Starr write about the center-periphery relationship created by the British empire?
