Mark MazowerActually, for all its promise of a more interactive imperial scholarship, the real strength of this book is its contribution not to Egyptian or Indian but to British history. It reminds us that London's rivalry with the French played itself out globally, and that this military and naval conflict was also a struggle over the appropriation and consumption of antiquities. Empire was thus a way for the colonizers not only to refashion themselves but also to rethink their place in world history.
