Pax Britannica: A History of the British Empire

Samuel Hume

Pax Britannica is a narrative history podcast covering the empire upon which the sun never set. Beginning with the accession of James VI of Scotland to the throne of England, Pax Britannica will follow the people and events that created an empire that dominated the globe. Hosted by a PhD candidate in British Imperial history, and based on extensive scholarship and primary sources, along with interviews with experts in their field, Pax Britannica aims to explain the rise and eventual fall of the largest empire in history. After all, how peaceful was the 'British Peace'?

Mr. Hume does not fall prey to this tendency…or hasn’t fallen prey yet.I am also VERY impressed with Mr. Hume’s narration skills.~~~End of Review~~~~~~For Samuel’s Information~~~I... more
