    One thought on “Pax Britannica: The Climax of an Empire”

    1. Anglophiles will enjoy this hefty study that uses Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee summer of 1897 as the backdrop for an examination of the British Empire at its height. Sprinkled with amusing looks at outposts across the dominion, and with a large dose of stories of India, Morris brings the Empire, its people, and the conflicting views of it among its leaders to light. Some readers may want to have an atlas handy to examine some of the far-flung territories he covers.

    2. The second book in the splendid Pax Britannica series. All history should be so well written. I loved it! Now, on to the third and final installment.
