At the pinnacle of its power, England ruled an empire that embraced more than one-quarter of the globe. When the British flag flew over steamy jungles in Africa, sweltering Indian plains, plantations in the West Indies and the American Colonies, England tried to flex its cultural as well as political muscle.But in those distant and foreign lands, the British also were fascinated with native lifestyles. In India, for example, that meant wearing irresistible Kashmiri shawls and collecting dhurrie rugs and Benares brass for their homes away from home while importing their wicker, maintaining the tradition of high tea, and setting up polo fields and croquet.

It's high time black America buried Willie Lynch. Let's bury him deep and bury him for good. Old Willie - or at least the speech he supposedly gave to Virginia slaveholders on the banks of the James River in 1712 - has been making the rounds in America's black community for years. Louis Farrakhan quoted extensively from Lynch's speech at the Million Man March in 1995. Lynch supposedly urged American slaveholders to use envy, fear and distrust to divide their slaves, the better to control them.

HACKENSACK, N.J. -- Artemio Hernandez spends his days by the water. Every afternoon, the wiry and energetic 87-year-old Cuban takes the subway to Battery Park from his Upper West Side home to watch the ships pass by and to admire the Statue of Liberty. "I go there to remember my younger days," said Hernandez, who likes to remember the days when he lived in the South Ferry section of Manhattan 60 years ago, after he first came to the United States as a stowaway, huddled in the hold of a passenger ship.

The Bounty: The True Story of the Mutiny on the Bounty, by Caroline Alexander. Viking Press. 416 pages. $27.95. The rehabilitation of William Bligh is one of those quixotic projects that pit history against mythology, with predictable results. Remembered as a villain, the Bounty's captain was something closer to a hero: a humane commander who spared the lash, a brilliant navigator who guided an open boat full of castaways halfway across the Pacific to safety. He entered that boat at the point of a bayonet wielded by his erstwhile protege Fletcher Christian, who betrayed him and set him adrift in mid-ocean to face what looked like certain death.
