Nothing offends liberals and leftists more than Western imperialism—it is racism, sexism, and chauvinism all in one. And of course the epitome of Western imperialism is the British Empire, the biggest empire the world has ever known, covering at its height a quarter of the globe’s surface and ruling a quarter of the world’s population.

In The Politically Incorrect Guide to the British Empire, bestselling author H. W. Crocker III exposes—in brawling, rambunctious style—how the British Empire was actually one of the greatest establishers and defenders of freedom in history.

In this new PI Guide listeners will discover:

–How, far from being anti-imperialists, America’s colonists were more British than the British—demanding their rights as Englishmen and envisioning a continent-wide empire (a word the Founders used with approval)

–How Gandhi praised the British Empire for what it had done for India

–How the British Empire handled today’s troubled hot spots—like Africa, Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, and Pakistan

–What the world would be like if the British Empire were still governing a quarter of the globe—hint: everyone would be a lot better off

So strap on your pith helmet for a rollicking ride through some of history’s most colorful events. The Politically Incorrect Guide to the British Empire provides a panoramic and provocative view of four hundred years of history that will delight and amuse, educate and entertain.
