The Great Imperial Hangover: How Empires Have Shaped the World

The Great Imperial Hangover: How Empires Have Shaped the World

For the first time in millenia we live without formal empires. But that doesn’t mean we don’t feel their presence rumbling through history. The Great Imperial Hangover examines how the world’s imperial legacies are still shaping the thorniest issues we face today – from Russia’s incursions in the Ukraine to Brexit; from Trump’s ‘America-first’ policy to China’s forays into Africa; and from Modi’s India to the hotbed of the Middle East. Samir Puri is Senior Fellow at the International Institute for Strategic Studies in Singapore and frequently appears on news programmes for Al Jazeera, the BBC and Sky.
