The Inner Life of Empires

Hay Festival 2011, 
Tracing the lives of a single Scottish family whose eleven siblings roamed the globe to seek their fortunes, the historian explores the great elements of the C18th world: empire, politics, slavery, warfare and Enlightenment thought and sensibility. Chaired by Sarfraz Manzoor.
