Description
At the outset of the 1870s, the British aristocracy could rightly consider themselves the most fortunate people on earth, as they held the lion's share of land, wealth, and power in the world's greatest empire. By the end of the 1930s they had lost a generation of sons in World War I, and also much of their prosperity, prestige, and political significance. In this "brilliant, multifaceted chronicle of economic and social change" (New York Times), historian David Cannadine offers a lucid and sparkling new explanation about how this shift came about, and how it was reinforced in the aftermath of World War II.

"Cannadine has produced a great book, one that is comprehensive in its scope, and of critical importance in understanding how Britain has changed from the era of Gladstone and Lord Salisbury to that of Mrs. Thatcher."London Review of Books
