Klappentext

The last volume of the Pax Britannica trilogy charts the decline and dissolution of what was once the largest empire the world had known. From the first signs of decay in the imperial ambition in the Boer Wars, through the global shifts in power in the two World Wars, it offers a perspective that is honest, evocative and occasionally elegiac.

Biografie (Jan Morris)

Jan Morris ist eine der bekanntesten britischen Schriftstellerinnen. In ihrer ersten Lebenshälfte war sie als James Morris ein legendärer Reporter und Auslandskorrespondent, der 1953 schlagartig berühmt wurde, als er unter abenteuerlichen Umständen den Exklusivbericht über die Erstbesteigung des Mount Everest in die Londoner Times brachte. 1972 unterzog sich Morris im Alter von 46 Jahren einer Geschlechtsumwandlung und lebt seither als Schriftstellerin.
