Editorial Reviews

Review


"Magnificent...Taken together, these books constitute an extraordinary feat of organization and scholarship, and they provide the authoritative history of the British Empire for our generation, and the essential starting point of the re-writing of that history which will take place in the next generation. Opinions differ about the British Empire; there can be no disagreement about this superb history of it." --David Cannadine in The Times Literary Supplement

Format: Paperback
"The Oxford History of the British Empire" is a very serious historical work that looks at the history of the British Empire from many very differing points of view. This book is the third volue of a five volume series on the history of the British Empire and the general theme of this book is the history of the Britsh Empire in the nineteenth cenutry. Rather than being the work of one author, "The Oxford Hisotry of the British Empire - The Nineteenth Century" is an anthology of articles written by twenty nine different scholars, each of whom focused on their area of expertise.

This volume is divided in two parts. The first part adresses a range of themes related to the political, economic and social history of the British Empire during the nineteenth century. These themes include migration, trade, religion, science, imperial institutions, technology and many other topics. The second part is a series of articles that study different geographical areas, including South East Asia, India, the West Indies, Ireland, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Polynesia, Southern Africa and Egypt. This book is also well supplied with graphs, maps, and a thorough chronology of the historical events that took place within the Empire during this time period. One note is that each article tends to have different timeframes that better correspond to important historical events, so the book does not rigidly follow the history of events that took place between 1800-1900.

"The Oxford History of the British Empire" is an invaluable reference book that brings together numerous different facets of British Imperial history. As such, with more than 700 pages of information, it is an excellent place source of information.

All of these British books are about Britain trying to clean up their history. Everything about these Oxford History books is about that and it not accurate history. I will not waste my time by rating the rest.
