The Making of Modern Britain (2009)

English
3.97 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: Some very enjoyable stories about individual people who were important, learnt a lot about this period and why it matters. But it didn't really hang together as a book. Not sure if it is the ebook edition, but I found the structure and headings difficult to follow and wasn't qu...

review 1: It was interesting reading a bio on someone who is still alive. And to get a better understanding of current events that went a long with Queen and country. Despite the money, fame, etc I don't think I would ever want to be a royal. To constantly have your life on display. To hav...

review 1: Contains an interesting review of the political landscape of Britain in the 1930s, I was well aware of Mosley's blackshirts but had never heard of the green shirts or the Social Dividend movement. Also, an interesting overview of David Lloyd George's role in the development of t...

review 1: From hunter-gatherer tribes migrating out-of-Africa to Kasparov vs. Deep Blue, Andrew Marr presents what can only be a whirlwind tour of human history with brief glimpses of people, places and events. For the reader with only a cursory acquaintance with world history, this is a g...

review 1: I am an unashamed royalist. According to the author, "Though we live in a secular and materialistic age, the Queen believes, quite literally, that she has a vocation - that her function is a religious calling she must answer every day of her life." I have always held the Queen in...

review 1: I feel like this book has been badly marketed in the States, where it is called 'The Real Elizabeth.' If you are looking for a no holds barred, no stones overturned tell-all biography of the Queen, this isn't it. I don't think there can be such a thing, the Queen and Duke having ...
Diamond Queen Signed Edition (2011)

review 1: A fairly standard book about the Queen, her life and reign built around the no nonsense influence of her parents and the "teetering-on-the-brink-of-revolution" period for the monarchy in the 1990's. An enjoyable read, but the best bit by far is the closing phases of the "Into the...

review 1: I was tempted to give up reading this awfully dry book but kept going. Then about a third of the way in it takes a turn and does indeed become a very black satire. It becomes quit amusing for the next third and then finishes rather badly.There are far too many characters in the c...
