This is a highly readable book and there is no doubt that the writer, who is currently serving as a Conservative MP has an excellent background. But I found this book disappointing on a number of counts, not the least of which is that he persists in the ill-conceived notion that it's legitimate to judge nineteenth-century politicians, administrators and writers from a narrow 21st-century perspective. Still, I would recommend this book as supplemental reading for someone who is already well-versed in British colonial history.
