The Empire and British Politics
This chapter examines the place of imperial questions in British party politics and explains their persistence and drama within the context of a commitment to self‐government. The significance of moderate Conservatism for approaches to empire is established, and the chapter covers events in India, the Middle East, and Africa. It concludes by establishing Margaret Thatcher as an exemplar of Britain's eventual detachment from empire.
