    Om Ghosts of Empire

    Well-written, witty, but above all fair-minded, this is the best general overview of the British Empire to appear in years. Kwasi Kwarteng has emerged as a significant scholar on the historical scene Andrew Roberts I learned something new on virtually every page of this fine book Michael Burleigh Refreshing, original and well-researched ... "Britain knows best" arrogance is unmasked in chapter after chapter of this devastating book ... No one will understand the political situation in the world today who has not grasped the truths enshrined in Kwarteng's brilliant book -- A.N. Wilson Evening Standard A successful and convincing biography of the empire's ruling elites and their modern day legacies Economist Smart, witty and personable ... This is a book alive with wild and wonderful characters ... A cracking debut from a very accomplished historian Daily Telegraph Highly thought-provoking ... original, stimulating and insightful Times Literary Supplement It won't please jingoists, but this unsparing account of the British Empire, written by a Tory MP with Ghanaian roots, exposes the dangerous folly of imperial pretensions -- Sally Cousins Sunday Telegraph
