This review is from: Access To History: The British Empire, 1815-1914 (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!
