Drawing on more than a decade of research on four continents, Caroline Elkins demonstrates how and why violence in Ireland, India, Palestine, Kenya and other colonies underwrote Britain’s empire and the country’s imperial identity at home. In short, the blood and bones on which liberal-democratic “civilizations” sit. Rigorous and passionate, exploding myths of Western paternalism and progress. Caroline Elkins is founding director of Harvard’s Center for African Studies; Maya Jasanoff is the author of The Dawn Watch: Joseph Conrad in a Global World; Raymond Lotta is a spokesperson for Revolution Books.
