    What were the forces that thrust the British Empire to its extraordinary position of greatness and then just as powerfully drove it into decline? And why is nearly every nation on earth, in one way or another, the consequence of the British Empire?In these 36 lectures, Professor Allitt leads you through four centuries of British power, innovation, influence, and, ultimately, diminishment-four profound centuries that literally remade the world and bequeathed the complex global legacy that continues to shape your everyday life.

    C. Telfair says: "Comprehensive and Thoughtful"
    "Immensely good!!"

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Rise and Fall of the British Empire to be better than the print version?

    Have not seen the print version.

    NA


    What about Professor Patrick N. Allitt’s performance did you like?

    He delivers the lectures in an enthusiastic and knowledgeable manner. Very listenable despite the complexity of the subject manner.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes! I listened to it as much as I possibly could over the last several days, and many times drove longer routes so I could listen in the car.


    Any additional comments?

    Just wonderful. I recommend it very highly. My only complaint is that it brought up so many interesting topics and ideas and perspectives that I have more avenues of interest to pursue now than I have time for :)
