Ghosts of Empire : Britain's Legacies in the Modern World Paperback


The ghosts of the British Empire continue to haunt today's international scene and many of the problems faced by the Empire have still not been resolved.

In Iraq, Kashmir, Burma, Sudan, Nigeria and Hong Kong, new difficulties, resulting from British imperialism, have arisen and continue to baffle politicians and diplomats.

This powerful new book addresses the realities of the British Empire from its inception to its demise, skewering fantasies of its glory and cataloguing both the inadequacies of its ideals and the short-termism of its actions.
