In this book, Barfield considers the existence of “shadow empires,” the legacy of imperial powers which continue to impact world politics today despite having been disrupted or

dissipated by the rise of the present arrangement of nation states. 

“Empires cannot be properly understood without Barfield’s illuminating

understanding of their ‘shadow’: of how they transform their entire periphery.

That periphery is, under Barfield’s brilliant, clarifying lens, actually central.

He provides us with an analytical tool of great power.”

James C. Scott, Yale University
