There are three levels at which this atlas may be enjoyed. The first or macro-level is as a survey history of the British Empire, encompassing the grand themes of imperialism, nationalism, collaboration and conflict. The second or micro-level brings empire to life through detail: the bankers and businessmen, plantations, privateering, rebellions, treaties, voyages and settlements, as well as disease, food, clothes, the arts, arms, slavery and liquor. The third level is simply to flip the pages, enjoying any or all of the 350 maps, photographs and illustrations, more than half in color. 9x12".
