Review

Reviews for ‘The Thirties’

'Hugely impressive…she gives us a vast panorama, taking in everybody from debutantes to the destitute, painting a thoroughly entertaining and convincing picture of a nation deeply divided by class and region…for the depth of its research, the quality of the writing and the sheer richness and vibrancy of the material, this is a quite outstanding work of social history. From architecture to the abdication, from zeppelins to zoos, it is comfortably the definitive account of a decade that has been much maligned' Daily Telegraph

'Excellent…she has mastered a vast number of written sources, and the resulting synthesis is also a work of graceful, eloquent historical imagination….all the peaks are covered with calm competence, but it is in the bypaths she takes that THE THIRTIES excels….memorable…..the cinematic clarity of Gardiner's descriptions…make her book captivating' Sunday Times

'Enthralling…THE THIRTIES weaves an eclectic and exciting story….Gardiner has an almost cinematic sense of detail….The greatest tribute to Gardiner's book is that it doesn't read as history, more a vibrant, nuanced narrative of the lives lived by our immediate predecessors' The Times
