Nothing offends liberals and leftists more than Western imperialism-it is racism, sexism, and chauvinism all in one. And of course the epitome of Western imperialism is the British Empire, the biggest empire the world has ever known, covering at its height a quarter of the globe's surface and ruling a quarter of the world's population.
In The Politically Incorrect Guide to the British Empire, bestselling author H. W. Crocker III exposes-in brawling, rambunctious style-how the British Empire was actually one of the greatest establishers and defenders of freedom in history.
In this new PI Guide listeners will discover:
-How, far from being anti-imperialists, America's colonists were more British than the British-demanding their rights as Englishmen and envisioning a continent-wide empire (a word the Founders used with approval)
-How Gandhi praised the British Empire for what it had done for India
-How the British Empire handled today's troubled hot spots-like Africa, Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, and Pakistan
-What the world would be like if the British Empire were still governing a quarter of the globe-hint: everyone would be a lot better off
So strap on your pith helmet for a rollicking ride through some of history's most colorful events. The Politically Incorrect Guide to the British Empire provides a panoramic and provocative view of four hundred years of history that will delight and amuse, educate and entertain.
