9780099532637: Eminent Elizabethans: Rupert Murdoch, Prince Charles, Margaret Thatcher & Mick Jagger

Margaret Thatcher, Rupert Murdoch, Prince Charles, Mick Jagger - four figures who have illuminated our age.

·Margaret Thatcher – the first female Prime Minister, who dedicated herself with messianic zeal to breaking the mould of post-war British politics

·Rupert Murdoch – the billionaire media mogul whose empire, built on an ethical void, has polluted the channels of communication from London to Sydney, from New York to New Guinea

·Prince Charles – the royal dilettante whose erratic exploits shook the throne and put his own succession to it at risk

·Mick Jagger – lead singer of the Rolling Stones, who embodied the sixties counter-culture of sex and drugs and rock ‘n’ roll yet aspired to be a gentleman and accepted a knighthood at the behest of Tony Blair.

A sequel to Brendon’s bestselling Eminent Edwardians, Eminent Elizabethans is written in the same witty, ironic and irreverent style and reveals how each one played out a major theme in the new Elizabethan medley. Each is vividly and vitally depicted through pungent anecdote, piquant quotation and mordant commentary. In short, these brilliant miniatures are as entertaining as they are illuminating.

Review:

"A delight for connoisseurs of irreverence (4 stars)" (Christopher Silvester Daily Express)

"The book abounds with funny stories…there are three or four juicy details on every page (4 stars)" (Craig Brown Mail on Sunday)

"Excellent… By bringing a real historian’s discipline to the task, Brendon has unearthed lots of new material, including the first logged double entendre by Margaret “will this gun jerk me off?” Thatcher -" (Simon Hoggart Guardian)

"He possesses a sharp eye for illuminating detail and for his subjects’ contradictions… Often he is as funny as he is viperfish... If there is plenty of acidity here, there is also fairness" (John Preston Sunday Telegraph)

"Entirely refreshing… Steers well clear of reverence… It’s all merrily contentious stuff – and Brendon wears his mask of criticism well" (Bel Mooney Daily Mail)

Book Description:

Piers Brendon, author of the bestselling Eminent Edwardians, turns his sharp and witty eye to four characters who have illuminated the age of Elizabeth II: Rupert Murdoch, Prince Charles, Margaret Thatcher and Mick Jagger.
