The Pax Britannica Trilogy comprises three books of history written by Jan Morris, formerly James Morris. The books cover the British Empire, from the earliest days of the East India Company to the troubled years of independence and nineteen sixties post-colonialism. The books were written and published over a ten-year period, beginning in 1968 with Pax Britannica: The Climax of Empire.

General description of the books

Rather than concentrate on particular events the author, while providing detail and background information to the important moments and acts of the Empire in approximate chronological order, chose to present instead an overall impression of empire and its effects on nations and peoples from all sides of the debate. The books in chronological order are;

  • Heaven’s Command: An Imperial Progress (1973),
  • Pax Britannica: The Climax of Empire (1968)
  • Farewell the Trumpets: An Imperial Retreat (1978).
