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.

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.

Very muddled book. a real struggle to finish it. Very few relevant dates given which is very important. Far to much mention of comics and boys magazines, even a mention of "it aint half hot" and "dads army". Very little mention of East India company or other similar companies.
