About the Author:

Juliet Gardiner was editor of History Today, and has worked as an academic and trade publisher. In 1992 she returned to academic life and now heads the Publishing Studies programme at Oxford Brookes University. She has written eight books, including The 1940s House, and has edited The Penguin Dictionary of British History and Who's Who in 2,000 Years of British History.

Review:

The Edwardian Country House is another living experiment from the makers of the 1900 House and The 1940s House. The Edwardian Country House follows a team of volunteers and a modern family who turn back the clock to recreate life as it was for the upper classes and their servants in a country house in 1910. It will tell the story, over three summer months, of an old-fashioned way of life that is quintessentially English: a glorious country manor, tea and croquet on the lawn, a patrician butler and a stable full of horses. But this picturesque historical tableau is of a group of people utterly divided and ruled by class. Do their ostensibly old-fashioned issues of money, power, and above all, class, still plague Britain today? This will be a major series and a high-profile book.
