The Decline and Fall of the British Empire

The Decline and Fall of the British Empire

I’ve been given some amazing gifts this christmas.
For starters I’m half-way through Europe Between The Oceans 9000 BC-AD 1000 by Barry Cunliffe a book I was tipped off to by Margin Revolution. There is a nice review over at the Times.

I’ve also been given the hardback version of Simon Schama’s The American Future: A History. It’s reviews (1, 2, 3, 4) are more widespread which is unsurprising given it had a tv show to go with it.

Last but not least (for history anyways) I got the paperback version of Piers Brendon’s The Decline and Fall of the British Empire which is now a full year old and has a few reviews to its name as well and features an interesting excerpt on The Daily Beast.
