Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Praise for The Politically Incorrect Guide™ to the British Empire

“As someone who grew up in India, I often hear people ask, ‘What have the British done for us?’ Until I read this book, I didn’t have the full answer. And here is Crocker’s answer: ‘Apart from roads, railways, ports, schools, a parliamentary system of government, rights, separation of powers, checks and balances, the rule of law, and the English language... nothing!’”
—Dinesh D’Souza, President of the King’s College and best- selling author of The Roots of Obama’s Rage

The Politically Incorrect Guide™ to the British Empire offers a cautionary tale for Americans who don’t believe the sun could ever set on our great land. Even the grandest nations collapse when a people no longer believes in itself or its mission. Harry Crocker’s book is a jolly good read for Anglophiles and history buffs in general.”
—Brett M. Decker, Editorial Page Editor of The Washington Times and former Governor of the Hong Kong Foreign Correspondents’ Club

“H. W. Crocker’s Politically Incorrect Guide™ to the British Empire is a vivid, wide-ranging and persuasive defence of an empire that spread freedom, democracy and the rule of law.... and a testimony to those old virtues—grit, leadership and the stiff upper lip—which were taught to British children of my generation, and which are being air-brushed from history by the cult of political correctness. This brave and persuasive book deserves to be read in all courses of school history: it tells an inspiring story in an inspiring way.”
—Professor Roger Scruton, philosopher and author of more than two dozen books, including A Political Philosophy: Arguments for Conservatism
