LEGACY OF VIOLENCE A History of the British Empire

by | Read by Adam Barr

History • 31.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Caroline Elkins is esteemed for her meticulous research. This fine audiobook production fully conveys the grim authority of her critique of Britain's performance of "the white man's burden" in its long centuries of empire. Narrator Adam Barr is steady and forthright, expressive and at the same time restrained, as he takes us through a pattern of colonial governance that is pervasively brutal and appalling. No one, it seems, can administer corporal punishment quite like a British officer. This is an impressive work of research and storytelling, flawlessly narrated--but unremittingly sad.
