About the book:

On its twentieth anniversary, here is a new edition of this leading general history of British imperialism, from its Victorian heyday to present times. For the Third Edition Bernard Porter has revised and updated the full text. As before, he combines a lively narrative of events with detailed analysis, challenging more conventional interpretations of the progress of imperialism - he argues that the empire both aggravated and obscured a deep-seated malaise in the British economy. For the new edition he has added a concluding section on the legacy of empire. In its revised form it remains as Historical Studies described it, ' the best synoptic view yet presented of the Empire since the coming of the New Imperialism'.
