Books By Author Peter Mandler

From Plunder to Preservation by Peter Mandler From Plunder to Preservation, Hardback (May 2013)

This book looks at the effect of the British Empire on the cultures and civilisations of the peoples it ruled by considering the impact of empire on the idea of 'heritage'. Case studies and illustrations show how our understanding of the diverse heritages of world history was forged in the crucible of the British Empire.

Return from the Natives by Peter Mandler Return from the Natives, Hardback (March 2013)

Part intellectual biography, part cultural history, and part history of the human sciences, this book is a reminder that the Second World War and the Cold War were a clash of cultures, not just ideologies. It examines how far intellectuals should involve themselves in politics. It also looks at US' relationship with Afghanistan, Iraq and Iran.

English National Character by Peter Mandler English National Character, Hardback (October 2006)

Traces the surprisingly varied history of ideas amongst the English about their own 'national character' over the centuries. This book draws on lectures, sermons, political speeches, journalism, popular and scholarly books, poems and novels and films, satires and cartoons and caricatures, social science, and public opinion research.
