5.0 out of 5 stars Great, nostalgic read, 29 May 2009
This review is from: Mad Dogs and Englishmen: A Grand Tour of the British Empire at its Height (Hardcover)
Outstanding book, well illustrated, covering a huge subject. My only complaint is that there is a little too much on missionaries and religion, whereas, I'd prefer more about our colonial wars.
Still, highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book., 6 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A benign well illustrated part of history of Empire. The darker sides of colonialism such as buccaneers, colonial wars, 'troubles' and exploitation do not in this book cast a shadow over the days of Empire. An neither should it - because that is not the purpose of this book, and there a plenty of other books where one can read about that. The sides of Empire the book chooses to describe it does well.
