"The Raj and the Empire are endlessly interesting, but unappreciated is how great a part in the Imperial drama was play ed by the English public school, the gentlemen's clubs, and the Masonic lodges. 'The real secret of the Empire', P.J. Rich claims, 'was its passionate love of secrets and ritual - and of the splendid Imperial mumbo jumbo that owed more to Eto n t h a n Waterloo ever did'. His provocative discussion of the old boys' totems and taboos should infuriate both the schools' critics and defenders. This entertaining and highly original book explores why and how the British ruled a large part o f t he w or ld . Dr. Rich relates the history of education to developments in the sciences, such as theories of chaos and Rupert Sheldrake's hypothesis about morphic resonance. He is interested as well in the study of 'ritology' and in reconsider at io ns of Imp eri alism, which he views as a surrogate for an old boy 'religion' employing a symbolism 'that would make any High Churchman blush'. Those puzzled as to why 'so few governed successfully so many for so long' will find that Paul Rich ha s s urp ris ing answ ers."
