Reviews

[A] compelling, even-handed and masterful narrative -- Saul David * LITERARY REVIEW * He writes as well as ever and is a sure-footed guide. -- Edward Paice * THE SPECTATOR * 'A brisk, colourful account of the past 200 years of African history . . . A good informative read' * EVENING STANDARD * 'The Second World War points back towards a colonial past in Africa, to bygone scrambles for imperial power. It also glances forward to decolonisation. This global conflict is at the centre of Lawrence James's excellent survey of African history from 1830 to 1990 . . . Empires in the Sun is a brisk, well-written and jaunty account of European empire-building in Africa . . . Intrigue and devious political calculations propel the fast-moving narrative . . . The book is a timely reminder of the complexity of international politics, and the nuanced balance of forces that have shaped our modern world' -- Kwasi Kwarteng * THE TIMES *
