After the Victorians : The World Our Parents Knew Paperback

4 out of 5 (1 rating)


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."

Review by

Very interesting and good read. Wilson is not a professional historian--he considers himself to be a cultural critic (and a controversial one, at that).
