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