Sir Alan Burns’ Epic Defense of the British Empire (Guest: Bruce Gilley)

Published June 8, 2022
Heartland’s Tim Benson is joined by Bruce Gilley, professor of political science at Portland State University and member of the board of the National Association of Scholars, to discuss his new book, The Last Imperialist: Sir Alan Burns’ Epic Defense of the British Empire. They discuss Burns’ important role at the United Nations, his many appointments in different British colonies, his views on the benefits of British imperialism, and Gilley’s view that decolonization was incredibly mismanaged and executed far too hastily.
