- Review of "Evaluating Empire" by Jack P. Greene

A review by Frank O'Gorman in History Today of Jack P. Greene's book: Evaluating Empire and Confronting Colonialism in Eighteenth-Century Britain.
"The purposes of this book are singular and, to an extent, groundbreaking. It explores ways in which 18th-century ‘metropolitan Britons' spoke and wrote about Empire ‘as they tried to confront its unfolding problems in shifting contexts and to trace the gradual emergence after 1760 of a critique of Empire on the grounds of humanity, justice and liberty'."
