The truth, as Kwarteng reveals, is that there was no such thing as a model for imperial administration; instead, appointees were schooled in quirky, independent-minded individuality. As a result the Empire was the product not of a grand idea but of often chaotic individual improvisation. The idosyncracies of viceroys and soldier-diplomats who ran the colonial enterprise continues to impact the world, from Kashmir to Sudan, Baghdad to Hong Kong.

Great listen while I was packing up to move. I really liked the insight into how different ways places were treated after colonization had impact on how the nation following has coped with its independence.

Your voice is too good.
Would you listen to Ghosts of Empire again? Why?
Kwai - Your voice is too good to let anyone else read for you. For War & Gold, please read it yourself. It may take additional time, but your fans will wait.
