First published in 1936, this now-classic volume spans a time of rapid and far-reaching change in England--from Gladstone's first ministry, through the great contest with Disraeli, the Home Rule debate, the establishment of the Labour moverment, the Boer War, and the Liberal reforms of 1909-10, to the end of an era marked by the catastrophe of 1914. With stimulating analyses of social and economic developments as well as domestic and foreign policy, Ensor's account serves as a superb introduction to the period it covers and offers insight into the world of the 1930s in which it was written.
Why buy from World of Books
Our excellent value books literally don't cost the earth
It would be difficult to praise this book too highly. Packed with information, the narrative is throughout lucid and vivid; from cover to cover I had not lighted on a dull page. * Sunday Times (London) *
