Postcolonial critics are, I suspect, wrong when they argue that the mass of British people still mourn the loss of empire. But Britain’s politicians – and its Foreign Office – have found it hard to adjust to the loss, not so much of onetime colonies as of the global clout the colonies once afforded.
Linda Colley
I hope to keep writing journalism as long as I write fiction; it’s afforded me such amazing adventures and opportunities. It does take a lot of time, so it’s hard to do both at once, but I try to do a big journalism piece every couple of years, and I’ll hopefully continue with that.

Tony Rock

Bond has afforded me a great personal passport, which I use for UNICEF.
