The Pac Britannica trilogy is Jan Morris's accessible and entertaining narrative history of the British empire from the accession of Queen Victoria to the death of Winston Churchill. A snapshot of the Empire at the Diamond Jubilee, this second volume looks at what it comprised - from adventurers and politicians to communications and infrastructure - but also examines the jumble of ideologies within it and how they affected its 370 million people.
