5.0 out of 5 stars royal discord revisited, 18 Nov. 2008
This review is from: Royal Discord (Paperback)
Do not be put off by the rather academic cover- this is a page turner! Not only does Veronica Baker-Smith take a subject that has been neglected by others but she gives it a life and immediacy that I have rarely come across in historical biography - her exhaustive research covers all areas of Georgian life to the extent that I felt I inhabited it myself. The book certainly offers a serious re-evaluation of the politics of the day, a time of great upheaval in Europe with echoes of the present day, it is also tremendously funny and moving. A vital new piece of scholarship, brilliantly written by someone who obviously understands human nature as well as she understands history. Even if you think you are not interested in this period, you will want to read this book
