    1. This is a long dense (somewhat too long) detailed analysis about the decline and fall of the British Empire -- sharp and intelligent. The author, who seems to be a Tory, argues that the loss of its colonial empire was not due so much to the inevitability of the times, but in each case had very specific proximate causes. This is not fully convincing.Nonetheless, a fabulous book from a fabulous series (The Making of the Twentieth Century).
