With maps and tables in the text. 8vo, grey, black and red cardcovers, black spine. Donald Harman Akenson FRSC, FRHS (b. May 22, 1941, Minneapolis, Minnesota). . "What would have happened if the Irish had conquered and controlled a vast empire? Would they have been more humane rulers than the English? Using theCaribbean island of Montserrat as a case study of "Irish" imperialism, Don ald Akenson addresses these questions and provides a detailed history of the island during its first century as a European colony. Montserrat, although part of England's empire, was settled largely by the Irish and provides an opportunity to view the interaction of Irish emigrants with English imperialism in a situation where the Irish were not a small minority among whitesettlers. Within this context Akenson explores whether Irish imperialism o n Montserrat differed from English imperialism in other colonies. Akenson reveals that the Irish proved to be as effective and as unfeeling colonists as the English and the Scottish, despite the long history of oppression in Ireland. He debunks the myth of the "nice" slave holder and the view that indentured labour prevailed in the West Indies in the seventeenth century. He also shows that the long-held habit of ignoring ethnic strife within the white ruling classes in the West Indies is misconceived. If the Irish Ran the World provides interesting insights into whether ethnicity was central to the making of the colonial world and the usefulness of studies of sixteenth- and seventeenth-century English imperialism in the Americas." -p.

"Farewell The Peaceful Kingdom is anirreverent, incisive account of how Canada, from 1963 to the present, transformed itself from a strong federation into a society bent on self-destruction. Joe Armstrong documents the Pearson-Trudeau-Mulroney revolution, peeling away the layers of deception that have characterized Canada's fatal attraction to big government. [...] With deadly insight Armstrong tracks the seminal events and ideas that have debased anation. His conclusion: 'Canada does not suffer from a leadership crisis, but a crisis of citizenship.'
