Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This concluding volume of The Oxford History of England is vintage Taylor....It is also a superb recreation of an era, solidly based on an enormous range of significant materials and studded with judgments that continually compel one to question his own too-easy generalizations."—Annals of the American Academy of Political and Social Sciences

"This is the real stuff of history."—The Economist

"Its outstanding and rare merit is its splendid narrative sweep. Taylor shows a masterly grasp of all the factors that have gone to the development of England and the Empire into the Welfare State of today."—The Christian Science Monitor

"Glitters with personality, controversy, contemporary relevance, and genuine philosophical significance—and for that reason, quite as much as for its wit and literary grace, it deserves a general reading audience as well as scholarly attention."—Theodore Roszak, The Nation

"The real power of this volume lies beyond its scope and style, in the view it takes of the general working of the historical process."—The New York Times Book Review
