• Rupert Murdoch -- the billionaire media mogul whose empire, built on an ethical void, has polluted the channels of communication from London to Sydney, from New York to New Guinea 

   • Prince Charles -- the royal dilettante whose erratic exploits shook the throne and put his own succession to it at risk 

   • Margaret Thatcher -- the first female Prime Minister, who dedicated herself with messianic zeal to breaking the mould of post-war British politics 

   • Mick Jagger -- lead singer of the Rolling Stones, who embodied the sixties counter-culture of sex and drugs and rock 'n' roll yet aspired to be a gentleman and accepted a knighthood at the behest of Tony Blair.

A sequel to Brendon's bestselling Eminent Edwardians, Eminent Elizabethans is written in the same witty, ironic and irreverent style and reveals how each one played out a major theme in the new Elizabethan medley. Each is vividly and vitally depicted through pungent anecdote, piquant quotation and mordant commentary. In short, these brilliant miniatures are as entertaining as they are illuminating.
