From the cover: “It was the greatest imperial power the world had ever seen. At its peak it ruled a quarter of the globe and 1,000 million people – until its hasty dismantling saw the British Empire decline and disappear completely from the face of the earth. But not quite. It can still be said that the sun 11 never sets on Britain’s empire because even after the loss of Hong Kong that empire still encompasses over 1,000 territories (if you count bits of rock with names like Junk Island, Norman, Nelly, Rabbit and Shag) including a clutch of inhabited countries; the remnants of an empire that once coloured vast tracts of the globe red; the last pink bits. The author travels through it.”
