      Present Day — Britain and the Commonwealth Nations. Books can stand as short-hand symbols for larger galaxies of ideas. Yet the sheer scale and continuity of imperial repression over the years has never been properly laid out and documented. Spain ceded Florida to Britain. Hostilities ceased after the Glorious Revolution of when the Dutch William of Orange ascended the English throne, bringing peace between the Netherlands and England.

      He, along with dozens of British officers and soldiers, had been taken prisoner by the Boers—the tough, largely Dutch-speaking settlers who had been living in southern Africa for centuries and were not about to let the British Empire take their land without a fight. In almost every colony they had to fight their way ashore. The Darien scheme was a financial disaster for Scotland—a quarter of Scottish capital [53] was lost in the enterprise—and ended Scottish hopes of establishing its own overseas empire. A people must raise themselves to liberty.

      New generations have been recovering tales of rebellion, repression and resistance that make nonsense of the accepted imperial version of what went on. His hopes for survival depended on two other prisoners, who were still inside the wall. World empire, in the sense of a far-flung operation far from home, was a European development that changed the world over four centuries. The British understandably try to forget that their empire was the fruit of military conquest and of brutal wars involving physical and cultural extermination.
