Series in Development
When Britannia Ruled the WavesThough it exists now only in mere fragments, the British Empire was the largest in world history, covering around 25% of the world’s land surface and governing as many as 500 million people. Today, billions of people’s lives are in some aspect defined by the economic, political, and cultural legacies of British imperial rule. To understand the British Empire and Imperialism is to understand much about the world in which we live.
