4.0 out of 5 stars For Napoleon history was a set of lies agreed upon, by the powerful, 5 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Evil Empire: 101 Ways England Ruined the World: 101 Ways Britain Ruined the World (Hardcover)
For Napoleon history was a set of lies agreed upon, by the powerful. In `The Evil Empire' by Steven A Grasse all the woes of the old/new world can all be traced back to the remnant of the English Empire - England. Yes the modern world would be a much nicer place without the English claims the author who gives 101 eclectic examples to prove it. For instance: imagine North America without English colonisation, the destruction of its native population and wild life. Or imagine the world map without the divide and rule partition policy that followed English invasion from Ireland to India and beyond. The jousting style and accuracy of the book is criticised by many an Amazon reviewer. Nevertheless the underlying theme (with an introduction by English anarchist Penny Rimbaud) remains true - the evil of Empire and its subsequent airbrushing from orthodox history. Thus the reader is given pause to consider the historical and modern implications of Western lead empire.
