Few of the leading "builders" of the British empire – heroes to a previous generation . Paxman makes some very sharp points, and writes well.

Clive of India was mainly a fortune-seeker, "scheming, and devious in business". On the other hand, the book also describes atrocities committed by the colonised in, if anything, even more gory terms: the "Black Hole of Calcutta", for example, "a horror story to rival anything among the Gothic tales which swept Britain" at the time. Here's an example, towards the end: "The British empire had begun with a series of pounces.

What is the British Empire? An 'empire' is a group of countries ruled over by a single monarch or ruling power. The 'Whig' historians regarded the Empire as the deserved result of Britain's technological and moral, superiority. An empire doesn't need an 'emperor'. The British Empire comprised of Britain, the 'mother country', and the colonies, countries ruled to some degree by and from Britain. The British began to establish overseas colonies in the 16th century. They were proud that 'a small kingdom' had amassed such a huge empire. By contrast, some modern historians such as Edward Said (1978) have criticised Britain's 'cultural imperialism.

This study explores instances of Latin citation in late nineteenth- and twentieth-century colonial writing (Kipling, Conrad and Orwell), and then also in the postmodern/postcolonial work of Friel and Stoppard. The thesis makes two interlocking cases: first there is the intertextual case for how the investigation of Latin quotation in English texts on the British Empire makes possible a reconsideration of those same colonial or postcolonial texts, and of the value or interpretation they place upon the colonial experience. Second there is the methodological case for how the Latin quotations act as 'loopholes' within the text which can be used to generate meanings against the grain. The thesis makes important contributions to subfields within colonial discourse analysis and postcolonial critique, expanding our understanding of classical references within British imperial discourse and imperial learning, of post/colonial irony, and of the intertextual values and uses of citation.
