Publisher's Description

The teach yourself history series offers a refreshing alternative to dense academic historical books, its content being extensive yet written in an accessible and engaging style. All titles in this series are informative and compelling. Assuming no prior knowledge and full of anecdotes and fascinating details, these books will keep the reader hooked from beginning to end. At its greatest extent the British Empire covered one quarter of the globe and contained one sixth of the world's population. This book considers the fascinating and unique history of the British Empire from its origins and development to its demise and legacy. Michael Lynch considers the countries, motives and individuals involved with engaging objectivity. He pays particular attention to India, the 'Jewel in the Crown', and the Scramble for Africa before shifting the focus to the people of the Empire. He offers an original and fascinating insight into the lives of the adventurers, missionaries, settlers and administrators, as well as the colonised themselves.
