Summary

How the queen went into deep mourning after Prince Albert's death, while Disraeli and Gladstone struggled for power to dictate the course of foreign policy throughout an expanding empire. David Livingstone took Christianity into Africa, seeking to impose British values on the colonies in the belief they were God-given virtues, while efforts to protect the Suez Canal short cut to India eventually drew Britain into a bloody entanglement with Russia.
