Spanning the period from Cromwell s rule to decolonization in the late twentieth century, and including an extensive chronology for ease of reference, Levine considers the impact of British rule for people in Africa, India and Australia, as well as for the English rulers, and for the Welsh, Scots and Irish who were subject to internal colonialism under the English yoke. Imperialism often led to serious unrest; Levine examines the cruel side of imperialism s purportedly civilizing mission unflinchingly. Comprehensive, subtle and innovative, The British Empire: From Sunrise to Sunset tells the human story of colonialism alongside the political drama.
