Description
Now for the first time in trade paperback, the extraordinarily thorough, brilliantly researched and critically lauded study of the British imperial experience that A.N. Wilson called "a masterpiece"

Great Britain's geopolitical role has undergone many changes over the last four centuries. Once a maritime superpower and ruler of half the world, Britain now occupies an isolated position as an economically fragile island often at odds with her European neighbors.

Lawrence James has written a comprehensive, perceptive, and insightful history of the British Empire. Spanning the years from 1600 to the present day, this critically acclaimed book combines detailed scholarship with readable popular history.

"This is a stylish, intelligent and readable book". -- The New York Times Book Review

"A reliable, well-balanced and well-written account that should enlighten and entertain". -- Washington Post Book World

"A sprawling and complex subject handled with admirable style and selectivity". -- Publishers Weekly

"The range, sweep, and sheer verve of the book are prodigious".
