Michael Taylor’s The Interest is an absorbing and unsparing account of a willfully distorted episode in British history and a vital antidote to the Rees-Moggification of the national past. As readable as it is timely, the book will appeal to the academic and the lay reader alike in contributing significantly to current reappraisals of Britain’s relationship with its colonial past.
