Description

When this book begins, in the reign of Edward VII, Great Britain commands the mightiest empire the world has ever seen. By the time it ends, with the Coronation of Elizabeth II, Britain has emerged victorious from a world war, but ruined as a world power. How did Britain's power and influence decline? This is one of the questions which A. N. Wilson seeks to answer in his masterly follow-up to "The Victorians."

Reviews

." . . another masterpiece. There is the same magisterial sweep, the same rich mixture of broad historical narrative and telling detail, the same creation of a huge and varied cast of characters, all of them vividly portrayed in a few illuminating sentences. The range of Wilson's knowledge is breathtaking..."

-"Daily Telegraph
