Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
This is one of those marvelous one-offs -- a totally brilliant, amazingly fun and spectacularly written book of history about a neglected bit (the years before WW1 and their issues get forgotten in light of the Catastrophe that followed.) I fully agree with the previous reviewer.
However, one caveat: You can probably stop reading after the first section on the Parliament Bill and the Revolt of the Lords; like Strachey's Eminent Victorians, the author's piece de resistance is the first chapter, and Dangerfield's style is so over-the-top you should take it in properly-sized doses. (Dangerfield's book on Jacksonian America is rather good, too.)

Format: Paperback
Beautifully written, with a freshness and verve that grabs your attention and makes you want to memorise whole pasages. It is certainly not conventional history being almost impressionistic in approach, and giving you the feel of the subject and era. And such a fascinating subject, the death of the party that dominated the political scene for much of the nineteenth and the first two decades of the twentieth century, the last Liberal Prime Minister being the greatest politician of his age and greatest Liberal leader of all time.
