Synopsis

The British Empire, Darwin argues, was more than a group of colonies. Its power derived mainly from the fusing together of three different kinds of empire: the settler empire of the 'white dominions'; the commercial empire of the City of London; and 'Greater India' which contributed markets, manpower and military muscle.
