Description

In this celebrated work she vividly evokes every aspect of the 'great adventure', ranging from ships and botanical gardens to hill stations and sugar plantations, as she subtly traces the impact of empire on places as diverse as Sierra Leone and Fiji, Zululand and the Canadian prairies. Informative, accessible and entertaining, Heaven’s Command, takes us from the crowning of Queen Victoria in 1837 to the Diamond Jubilee in 1897.
