    This is an absolutely amazing volume. No need to read it all. Pick chapters you want to read. The editor did a wonderful job maintaining the quality of every article high. If you have any question about the British empire in 20C, this is the first go-to book.

    I would be lying if I said I read every page of this volume. There is a huge amount of information here, sometimes so much that it is to the detriment of its readability. The different essays by different scholars does not lend itself to making the book a page turner, but I can't picture there being many better sources of information on the subject.
