Porter - Lion's Share

Bernard Porter
The Lion's Share: A Short History of British Imperialism, 1850-1983
2nd Ed. (London: Longman Group UK Limited, 1984)

I bought this a few years back on a whim while wandering through the course text section at University. I have been nibbling on it as my light history book over the last few months. I finally finished it, though I admit to being out of it and not reading the conclusion carefully enough.

Some useful information, will use it to change part of my discussion of Europe and the World when next I teach Western Civ, but my biggest thoughts on this have to do with Heinlein's The Moon is a Harsh Mistress which I am still "reading" as a book on tape and which I will blog about once I finish listening to it.
