9780099451877: After The Victorians: The World Our Parents Knew

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:

"No review can do justice to the richness, liveliness and sheer fun of this book. Wilson has written one of the books of the year" (John Charmley Guardian)

"Argumentative, thought-provoking and very well-written" (Andrew Roberts Daily Telegraph)

"He shows that the issues which dominate our headlines - immigration, Iraq, religious tolerance - have their roots in decisions made, or not made, as long ago as the Twenties ... A compelling read" (Kathryn Hughes Mail on Sunday)

"The practised columnist's ability to provoke new thoughts with an original and opinionated argument is evident on nearly every page... Coherent and absorbing" (Michael Grove The Times)

"A page-turner, lambent with fascination... One of the best things about the book is the use Wilson makes of the period's reflection in its fecund literature. And, indeed, his masterly piece of history is a work of literature too" (A.C. Grayling Financial Times)

From the Publisher:

Follow-up to the bestselling The Victorians in which A. N. Wilson tells the story of the 'Decline and Fall' of Britain.
