This volume examines the major themes and events in British colonial history in the light of recent historical research, to provide an introduction to the topic. The book sets the Empire within a broad historical context and not only explains its evolution and expansion in Africa and Asia, but also considers its impact on British politics, popular culture and society. It identifies and considers the main areas of historiographical controversy, and examines the balance sheet of the Empire, discussing the costs and benefits for British society and her imperial colonies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Overview 28 Sep 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Writing and overview of a long period of History that looks at many different societies is not easy. If the author has to pitch the book at A-Level students the task is even heavier. However, this book does the job! It is a good introduction to a massive topic - not dull, not complicated, simply informative.

This was a very useful source of information whilst studying for my History A level. Easy to read and it doesn't overwhelm the reader.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential read 26 Nov 2003
Format:Paperback
As a 17 year old in school, i read this book outside of my curriculum, and found it completely fascinating. Everyone in this country should know our imperial history, whether they study it in school or not. The backround information also allows you to make connections with other topics and draw on current events of the time, something i knew next to nothing about before reading the book!
