9780141010229: After Tamerlane: The Rise and Fall of Global Empires, 1400-2000

Tamerlane, the Ottomans, the Mughals, the Manchus, the British, the Soviets, the Japanese and the Nazis.

All built empires they hoped would last forever: all were destined to fail. But, as John Darwin shows in his magnificent book, their empire building created the world we know today.

From the death of Tamerlane in 1405, last of the ‘world conquerors’, to the rise and fall of European empires, and from America’s growing colonial presence to the resurgence of India and China as global economic powers, After Tamerlane provides a wonderfully intriguing perspective on the past, present and future of empires.

Review:

"Marvellously illuminating...Darwin sustains an intricate thesis with enormous panache."--"Independent "(UK ) "Elegant and brilliant....wonderful and imaginative...a deeply significant book."--"Sunday Times "(UK ) "Undoubtedly a great work, a book that goes truly global in chronicling the history of one of our abiding concerns: the pull and limitations of absolute power."--"St. Petersburg Times"
