Who were the men governing the Empire in the nineteenth century? How were they chosen and controlled? How did they see their mission? And why did they do it?From Fiji to Falkland Islands, from Malaysia to Australia and South Africa, from Lagos toMoreWho were the men governing the Empire in the nineteenth century? How were they chosen and controlled? How did they see their mission?

And why did they do it?From Fiji to Falkland Islands, from Malaysia to Australia and South Africa, from Lagos to Ottawa, ordinary British men and women, often with no training, were dispatched to strange places, among strange people, to face unimaginable conditions. Some started wars. Others fought disease, injustice and slavery. Many died, others went mad. Running the Show, drawing on vast unpublished sources, reveals the day-to-day lives, griefs and triumphs of governors at the height of the British Empire as they struggled to make sense of their charges and, frequently, themselves.
