Walter OlsonA. N. Wilson, the prolific English journalist and author who won applause three years ago with The Victorians, has returned with a second popular history tackling the half-century between Victoria's death in 1901 and the coronation of Elizabeth II in 1953. As before, he has sought to render "a portrait of an age, rather than a formal history." Cleverly organized, engagingly written and rich in content, After the Victorians proceeds to some utterly wrongheaded conclusions. It is a book to enjoy—when not throwing it across the room.
