This book was one of two books used in a history course on the British Empire After 1780. The book was very informative and combined research and essays written both during the period and after the British Empire had decolonized. The book presented all information logically and with great footnotes for further study. This book was written for both undergraduate level students and casual readers interested in the phenomenon that is the British Empire that history remembers as never having a setting sun.

THIS BOOK WAS VERY EDUCATIONAL, AND WENT INTO MUCH DETAIL OF THE ISSUES THAT OCCURED DURING THIS TIME AND THE EFFECTS IT HAD ON THE AFRICAN PEOPLE.
