Reviews
With a sensitive and compelling biography of Burns, The Last Imperialist shows how individual lives shaped the experience of colonialism in the mid-twentieth century as the British Empire ended and nation-states emerged. The book brings complexity and nuance back into a historiography increasingly ruled by one-dimensional partisan narratives.--Tirthankar Roy, London School of Economics
An important work on the last stages of the British empire that uses the focus of a single career to ask important questions about standard accounts. A powerful work of revisionism.--Jeremy Black, author of Imperal Legacies
