For too long, the British Empire has been denigrated and equated with arrogance at best and racial bigotry at worst.

He was an explorer and naturalist, recording new species on his many travels- a big game hunter with huge expertise across continents- an engineer of skill and ingenuity- a general of ability- an administrator second to none- and an ardent opponent of African slavery. M. J. Trow, in this the first biography of Baker for twenty years, draws heavily on Bakers prolific writings to bring the extraordinary character of this Victorian adventurer and his achievements to life.
