en Limba Engleză Paperback – 06 Mar 2008
All built empires they hoped would last forever: all were destined to fail. But, as John Darwin shows in his magnificent book, their empire building created the world we know today.
From the death of Tamerlane in 1405, last of the ‘world conquerors’, to the rise and fall of European empires, and from America’s growing colonial presence to the resurgence of India and China as global economic powers, After Tamerlane provides a wonderfully intriguing perspective on the past, present and future of empires.
John Darwin is a University Lecturer and a Fellow of Nuffield College, Oxford. He is the author of Britain and Decolonization, The End of the British Empire and Britain, Egypt and the Middle East.
