9781784534721: Resplendent Adventures with Britannia: Personalities, Politics and Culture in Britain

Resplendent Adventures with Britannia is the latest addition to Wm Roger Louis’s stimulating and acclaimed series, Adventures with Britannia. It draws upon a distinguished array of writers and scholars―historians, political scientists, journalists, novelists, biographers and English literature specialists―to guide the reader through a fascinating labyrinth of British culture, history and politics. Together, they provide a unique insight into the pivotal themes―political, literary and cultural―which have shaped British state and society. The subjects covered include an assessment of Gordon at Khartoum by Richard Davenport-Hines, a new appraisal of Larkin by Joseph Epstein, an account of the Bloomsbury Group by Rosemary Hill and an analysis of the Tasmanian Genocide by Bernard Porter. Collectively, the chapters combine a rich mix of original ideas, historical and literary allusion, personality and anecdote, to provide an intellectual adventure into the mainsprings of modern British and international society.
