Description
This is the history of an era rather like our own—a time when dissenters and rebels were hemmed in by conformists and hardheaded authoritarians, and a nation on the threshold of global domination fretted about its future. People who argued that a British empire would be a disaster for liberty were eventually out-shouted by the imperialists, just as those who railed against mindless materialism were in the end rolled over by industrialists and the promoters of luxury goods. Ben Wilson shows us early 19th-century Britain's emerging role as the economic and political powerhouse of the world, a nation that was also deeply anxious about the responsibilities that a vast empire might require.
