From the Back Cover:

"One of the many merits of Ben Pimlott′s superbly judicious biography of Elizabeth II is that it understands this connection between monarchy and masses, and carefully evokes its political importance.
The New York Times Book Review

"A level–headed study . . . helps us appreciate the capacities as well as the limitations of a woman who, whatever else happens, just keeps on going on."
People

"There will be no better biography of Elizabeth II as a figure of state until her official one appears and perhaps not even then. . . . Pimlott has succeeded triumphantly. He has written a book that can be enjoyed and admired by people who would never have imagined reading any previous royal biography."
The Independent (London)

"An important and stimulating book."
Antonia Fraser, author of Mary, Queen of Scots in The Guardian (London)

"The best all–around study of the Queen so far, showing understanding as well as amused irony."
The Sunday Telegraph (London)

"There will not be a better royal biography for many years."
The Daily Telegraph (London)

About the Author:

BEN PIMLOTT is Professor of Politics and Contemporary History at Birkbeck College, University of London, and the youngest fellow of the British Academy. His books include Harold Wilson and Hugh Dalton, winner of the Whitbread Prize. Dr. Pimlott lives in London.
