Sir Robert Ensor's volume in the "History of England" has long been recognized as a classic. It covers a period of rapid and far-reaching change, from Gladstone's first ministry, through the great contest with Disraeli, the Home Rule debate, the establishment of the Labour movement, the Boer War, and the Liberal reforms of 1909-10, to the end of an era abruptly marked by the catastrophe of 1914. Ensor's account devotes considerable space to social and economic developments as well as domestic and foreign politics.

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))From the Back Cover:
The date at which this volume ends, the outbreak of the European War, is the latest for which there is enough documentary evidence to write English history scientifically.When the guns of the Franco-Prussian war first thundered in earnest on 4 August 1870 a new epoch began, although Europe at the time did not know it. At midnight of the same day just forty-four years later the sands of Great Britain's ultimatum to Germany ran out; and with them the epoch ended. It is the task of the present volume to trace the history of England during these forty-four years.
