Product Details


"Spirited, teeming. . . . Jasanoff wants us to rethink the imperial experience."  –The New York Times"Astute and moving. . . . As original–and beautifully written—as it is compelling to read.” –The New York Sun“A historical tour de force, with wonderfully original and unusual material moulded into a convincing new narrative. Britain’s empire will never look the same again.”–The Guardian"Instead of concentrating on the 18th-and 19th-century European empire builders. . . . Jasanoff focuses on several ambitious, energetic, and eccentric men who used the East as a way to reinvent themselves….a fascinating and untold story." –The Boston Globe
