2 Day, David Conquest: A New History of the Modern World
Sydney HarperCollins Publishers (Australia) Pty Ltd 2005 0732277655 / 9780732277659 First Paperback Very Good Octavo

List of Maps; Endnotes; Select Bibliography; Index. "As David Day makes clear in this fascinating new book, no society on earth has been in continuous occupation of the land it has come to regard as its own. Behind the acquisition of land by humans in the recorded history of our species lies not only the high but bloody drama of conquest and empire, but also a magnificent though sometimes fraudulent web of acquisitory rituals, legal fictions, ruses and mythologies by which land is to be acquired or taken."

Internally unmarked; solidly bound. Black-and-white plates. Notes and index. "This sequel to Athleticism in the Victorian and Edwardian Public School is more than a description of the imperial spread of public school games; it is a consideration of hegemony and patronage, ideals and idealism, educational values and aspirations, cultural assimilation and adaptation and perhaps most fascinating of all, the dissemination throughout the empire of the hugely influential moralistic ideology of athleticism."

India Britannica, Moorhouse, Geoffrey
5 Moorhouse, Geoffrey India Britannica
London Book Club Associates 1983 Reprint Hard Cover Very Good Very Good Book Club Quarto 
288 pp. Light general and edgewear to unclipped dustjacket. Previous owner's name inked to front free endpaper, along with a spot of messy erasure. Internally unmarked; solidly bound. Maps to endpapers. Colour and black-and-white illustrations throughout. "Geoffrey Moorhouse does not become ensnared by the prejudices of either Indians or British, but rather looks at those prejudices straightly, exposing them for what they were. He produces an even-handed picture, but he is not detached from his subject. His enthusiasm for, and understanding of India, its people, and the period of the British Raj, leap off the page to give the book its thoroughly individual flavour."
