Summary
"In this book, David Cannadine investigates the ideologies and social attitudes at the heart of the Empire. One of them was, undoubtedly, race. But even more pervasive was class - a traditional vision of hierarchy and subordination, derived from the sense the British had of their own society, which they exported and analogized to the ends of the earth and back again." "This was how the British made, ran and visualized their Empire. And this in turn helps us to understand many of its seemingly baffling oddities, such as the ostentatiously elaborated monarchy and the exceptionally complex honours system, both of which the British continue to live with, long after most other nations who were once part of the Empire have given them up."--BOOK JACKET
