Краткое описание

Heaven's Command: An Imperial Progress.

Tracing the rise of the British Empire from Queen Victoria's accession in 1837 to the eve of her Diamond Jubilee in 1897, this prequel to Jan Morris's superb 1968 book Pax Britannica (originally published under the transsexual author's pre-operative name James Morris) chronicles the era through a series of historical accounts, descriptive passages, and character studies. Morris—the world-class essayist and traveler who also penned A Writer's House in Wales and Trieste and the Meaning of Nowhere—vividly evokes such events as the last survivor of the Afghan War arriving at the walls of Jalalabad, black Jamaicans hailing the abolition of slavery, and the Boers decimating England's crack regiments. Along with the final volume Farewell the Trumpets, the Pax Britannica trilogy is recognized as a central work in the Golden PEN Award–winning author's distinguished and wide-ranging career as a travel writer, essayist, historian, memoirist, and novelist."Heaven's Command revives, with grace, the spirit of a past as much deserted as lost."—New Statesman
