Historian urges Britons to be proud of empire

According to a British historian Lawrence James, there is no need for Britain to aplogise for its imperial past because it also did something good for the colonised peoples. 'Of course, there are other historians in Britain and other nations in the world on earth who may not agree. But, another British historian who may agree with Lawrence James is Andrew Roberts who wrote A History of the English-Speaking Peoples Since 1900 ('London, 'Phoenix, 2007') and several other history books from the perspective of an England-centered and Churchillian patriot.
