The Politically Incorrect Guide to the British Empire | [H. W. Crocker]

The Politically Incorrect Guide to the British Empire

Nothing offends liberals more than Western imperialism—it is racism, sexism, and chauvinism all in one. And of course the epitome of Western imperialism is the British Empire, covering at its height a quarter of the globe’s surface and ruling a quarter of the world’s population. Here, best-selling author H. W. Crocker III exposes how the British Empire was actually one of the greatest establishers and defenders of freedom in history.

Publisher's Summary

Nothing offends liberals more than Western imperialism—it is racism, sexism, and chauvinism all in one. And of course the epitome of Western imperialism is the British Empire, the biggest empire the world has ever known, covering at its height a quarter of the globe’s surface and ruling a quarter of the world’s population. Here, best-selling author H. W. Crocker III exposes—in brawling, rambunctious style—how the British Empire was actually one of the greatest establishers and defenders of freedom in history.

So strap on your pith helmet for a rollicking ride through some of history’s most colorful events. The Politically Incorrect Guide to the British Empire provides a panoramic and provocative view of 400 years of history that will delight and amuse, educate and entertain.

What the Critics Say

"As someone who grew up in India, I often hear people ask, ‘What have the British done for us?’ Until I read this book, I didn’t have the full answer.” (Dinesh D’Souza, New York Times best-selling author)

    "Not what I thought it'd be"

    The book consists of around 20 disconnected autobiographical histories of important figures who created the British Empire. However, there is virtually no argument for or against the British Empire being a good or a bad thing. Rather, Crocker just seems to like the people he describes and on the basis that they were quite fascinating characters the British Empire was a good thing. Any sort of analysis of what the British Empire actually did, for good or ill, was not present.
