Synopsis: More than Shakespeare, more than the invention of the railway, more than fair play, it was Empire which made Britain into Great Britain. By the early 20th century, that Empire covered around a quarter of the earth’s surface, and embraced more than a quarter of its inhabitants, a mass of over 500 million people. From Australian sheep farmers to African nurses, all lived in an imperial world over which the Union Jack always fluttered, and on which it was commonly said the sun never set. From the pirate-ridden Atlantic and Caribbean of over four centuries ago to the success of the Falklands War, this extraordinary patchwork of territories and peoples was the creation of British ambition, ingenuity, and enterprise.

About the Author: Bill Nasson was born and raised in South Africa under the Apartheid regime. At the end of the 1960s he was excluded on grounds of government racial classification from studying at South Africa's main universities but won a series of prestigious scholarships to study in the UK. He gained his doctorate at the University of Cambridge and returned to South Africa during the final era of white minority rule. In 1997 he became Professor of History at South Africa's premier University of Cape Town. He has held visiting appointments and fellowships at Yale University and the University of Cambridge. His other books include the critically acclaimed The South African War ('A magnificent, subtle and memorable book' The Independent.
