about

A Guardian Favorite Book of the Year

A. N. Wilson's landmark sequel to The Victorians is a colorful, panoramic portrait of the era that began with the death of Queen Victoria in 1901 and extended to the dawn of the Cold War in the early 1950s. Expertly mapping the connections between military, political, social, and cultural history, After the Victorians is an incisive chronicle of Great Britain's decline. Wilson delivers a timely analysis of imperialism and its discontents and a fresh account of the birth pangs of the modern world.

A. N. Wilson, a fellow of the Royal Society of Literature, holds a prominent position as a writer and journalist. He is the author of many critically acclaimed works, including The Victorians, Paul, and My Name Is Legion.
