Pax Britannica: Climax of an Empire

Pax Britannica: Climax of an Empire by Jan Morris was published in 1968, and tells the tale of the world's largest empire at its most glorious climax - Victoria's 1897 Diamond Jubilee. Nicholas Woode-Smith reviews the book and discusses the ironic charm of the British Empire at possibly its sincerest and most glorious celebration of its supremacy.
