This book deserves to become a standard work. It is reliable, lucid, even-handed and up-to-date ... Nowhere has Edwardian social history been so revealingly synthesised. The Spectator A masterful, lucidly written and well proportioned survey over the whole range of national life. Paul Smith, Times Literary Supplement This is a marvellous book in its breadth, its comprehensiveness and, given its length, the enormous pleasure it has been to read. Necessarily a work of synthesis, it efficiently weaves together telling quotes, examples and statistics to conjure up the late Victorian and Edwardian world. Peter Catterall, History Today
