Britain's Imperial Mission: How I Failed it but Discovered Myself Writer David Mould reflects on his (mostly unhappy) experience at a British boarding school in the 1960s, how it shaped his career as a journalist and academic and made him think differently about the society in which he grew up and the wider world. Mould is the author of "Postcards from Stanland: Journeys in Central Asia." His second book, "Monsoon Postcards: Indian Ocean Journeys," will be published by the Ohio University Press in 2019. Like his first book, it will be part travel memoir about the history and culture of Madagascar, Malawi, India, Bangladesh and Indonesia.
