Andrew Porter is Rhodes Professor of Imperial History at the University of London.
`Oxford University Press has recently published a wide variety of historical titles in paperback. Pride of place must go to the five volume Oxford History of the British Empire written under the general editorship of Professor William Roger Lewis and published in hardback in 1998. The five volumes, describe the history and effect of the Empire on world history. The scholars who contributed and the volumes' individual editors all deserve high praise for thie massive undertaking.' Contemporary Review `Stafford's chapter provides an excellent overview of the Royal Geographical Society's activities in Africa, North America and Australasia ... Excellent maps provide summaries for Africa and Australia that would be very useful for undergraduate teaching.' LR, Historical Records of Australian Science, Vol.13, No.2. `these volumes and the series of which they are part represent a very useful resource and an important synthesis of much postwar imperial history.'
