For decades the British Empire was the world's superpower, with Britain its financial and commercial centre. It was an empire concerned, like the US today, not only with maintaining its own power but also the world order. In his 'post-racial account', economics scholar and Conservative MP Kwasi Kwarteng re-examines the messy legacy of the British Empire - grand, colourful and chronically unstable due, he argues, to haphazard and incoherent policy-making that went unchecked.
