Dominion - Peter Ackroyd


Category: Middle Ages
Description: Peter Ackroyd continues his History of England series with Dominion. This impressive hardback tome will delight any armchair historian. This book takes us from post- Battle of Waterloo Britain in 1815 though to the last years of the Regency and death of Queen Victoria in 1901. Ackroyd casts his eye over William IV's reign that saw the modernisation of the political system and the abolition of slavery, the accession of Queen Victoria and technological progress including the invention of steam railways and the first telegram. This richly detailed book also looks at industrialisation and the sheer amount of great literature that was written during this era ( Byron, Shelley, Wordsworth and, of course, Dickens). It celebrates a time when Britannia really did seem to rule the waves.
