Description

This astoundingly successful, superbly reviewed book vividly recreates the excitement, brutality and adventure of the British Empire. Ferguson's most revolutionary and popular work, EMPIRE is a major reinterpretation of the British Empire as one of the world's greatest modernising forces. It shows on a vast canvas how the British Empire in the 19th Century spearheaded real globalisation with steampower, telegraphs, guns, engineers, missionaries and millions of settlers.

    A book that’s factual warts and all but also let’s you know as a human we are morose. Is that right or wrong ? To me is was being human wrong or right ! And that is the question As we progress and history is our knowledge do we still not understand that our ways are disputable because we are human . We can be the answer but are the problem ? We have always been greedy . That’s why communism didn’t work. Technology will only exacerbate the problem. Wrongly or rightly as humans have always wiped each other’s cultures out since time began
