Magnificent... The book is studded with astonishing facts -- Stuart Kelly * Scotland on Sunday *
The Empire Stops Here is not only a history. It is also an engaging modern unexpectedly universal legacy of the empire -- Mary Beard * Financial Times *

Intriguing...with this extraordinary book, [Parker] has raised a monument all of his own -- Tom Holland * Guardian *
A blend of travelogue, classical history and archaeology.
