The Book Club will meet on Tuesday, 21st July at 2pm at Claudia’s home to discuss:
Ghosts of Empire: Britain’s Legacies in the Modern World
by Kwasi Kwarteng
From a review in The Telegraph:
Kwasi Kwarteng, a Tory MP of Ghanaian descent educated at Eton, has come up with a book about empire that it is hard to imagine any of his colleagues writing. Generations of colonial rulers and officials from privileged backgrounds, he claims, wayward folk, often, were responsible for much of the disorder and chaos that afflicted the British Empire. Worse, he sees them as responsible for many of the problems former colonies suffer today.
