520 8 |a This textbook combines a lively narrative of events with a number of broad analytical themes that challenge more conventional interpretations of British imperialism, including a new concluding section on the legacy of empire.  |b As well as presenting a lively narrative of events, Bernard Porter explores a number of broad analytical themes, challenging more conventional and popular interpretations. He sees imperialism as a symptom not of Britain's strength in the world, but of her decline; and he argues that the empire itself both aggravated and obscured deep-seated malaise in the British economy.
