A Short introduction,
This review is from: The British Empire: A Very Short Introduction (Very Short Introductions) (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I would say that this is a rather ambitious effort, considering the volume of space given in the series that is `A Very Short Introduction', over to a topic that can be a `mine field' of different ideological view points and political bias, but the author does a reasonable job of giving a balanced review of the topic. You have to bear in mind that is more of taster. Those people wanting a more comprehensive over view will need to look to other texts on the subject.
