Debating the Legacies of the British Empire

26 07 2009

I’m posting a link to an excellent roundtable discussion about the legacies of the British Empire. The discussion was first broadcast in 2006 but I’ve only discussed it now. The participants are Niall Ferguson, Linda Colley, and Eric Hobsbawm (three distinguished historians), literary scholar Priyamvada Gopal, and theologian Robert Beckford. The moderator is Andrew Marr.
