After Tamerlane by John Darwin
Book DescriptionTamerlane, the Ottomans, the Mughals, the Manchus, the British, the Soviets, the Japanese and the Nazis - 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.

Prospect of Global History, Hardback (February 2016)
The Prospect of Global History offers a new approach to the study of history, looking at the subject across a greater chronological range and seeking perspectives from sources beyond conventional European narratives.
Unfinished Empire, Paperback (August 2013)
Offers a both controversial and comprehensive historical analysis of how the British Empire worked. This book shows how diverse, contradictory and in many ways chaotic the British Empire really was, controlled by interests that were often at loggerheads, and as much driven on by others' weaknesses as by its own strength.
Empire Project, Paperback (July 2011)View all books by John Darwin
A magisterial global history of the rise and fall of the British Empire by an award-winning author.
