In print continuously since its first appearance in 1936, this study of the Victorian era from 1837-1901 is regarded as the greatest history of that time ever written. G. M Young's remarkable survey has outstanding clarity, delicious wit, and penetrating scholarship. "An immortal classic, the greatest long essay ever written."--Simon Schama. "A magnificent piece."--Punch. "Every page is delightful reading."--Guardian. "[A] breathtaking range of scholarship, richness and aptness of language, and acid sharpness of wit."--Country Life.

About the Author:

G.M. Young was a Fellow of All Souls College, Oxford. 'I was born when the Queen had still nearly nineteen years to reign; I saw her twice, Gladstone once; I well remember the death of Newman and Tennyson, and my earliest recollection of the Abbey brings back the flowers fresh on Browning's grave.'
