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, 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.
