Editorial Reviews

"This concluding volume of The Oxford History of England is vintage Taylor....It is also a superb recreation of an era, solidly based on an enormous range of significant materials and studded with judgments that continually compel one to question his own too-easy generalizations."--Annals of the American Academy of Political and Social Sciences "This is the real stuff of history."--The Economist "Its outstanding and rare merit is its splendid narrative sweep. Taylor shows a masterly grasp of all the factors that have gone to the development of England and the Empire into the Welfare State of today."--The Christian Science Monitor "Glitters with personality, controversy, contemporary relevance, and genuine philosophical significance--and for that reason, quite as much as for its wit and literary grace, it deserves a general reading audience as well as scholarly attention."--Theodore Roszak, The Nation "The real power of this volume lies beyond its scope and style, in the view it takes of the general working of the historical process."--The New York Times Book Review
