Praise for The Last Thousand Days of the British Empire: 'Clarke has created a brilliant popular history ... he tells [the story] with such wit, verve and scholarly insight that one seems to encounter a brave new world' Piers Brendon, Sunday Telegraph 'There are few historians writing today who are more elegant and lucid than Clarke ... a triumph of stylish, thought-provoking history' Richard Aldous, Irish Times 'As this book majestically demonstrates, the empire tortuously, deceptively and often misleadingly progresses towards extinction' Jan Morris, Guardian
