3.0 out of 5 stars Wide ranging descriptive account of Edwardian Britain, 13 Jan. 2008
This review is from: The Edwardians: Biography of the Edwardian Age (Paperback)
This descriptive account of Edwardian life left me feeling a bit uncertain as to whether, with a few minor exceptions, such events were the result of `Edwardian initiatives' or merely legacies from Victoria's Reign.

Contrary to some of the `professional' reviews, I thought the book lacked Roy Hattersley's usual humour and in my opinion, and this is just my opinion, some of the factual areas' touched on by Hattersley are debatable - I'm making particular reference to the Scott v Shackleton juncture.

As this book is in no way an analysis of the Edwardian period I felt the narrative would have faired better had the author injected his usual humor and levity, without which, for me, the book lacks personality.

Having said this, the book still reads well and if you feel there is a knowledge gap in your twentieth-century `cerebral archive', then this book would be an excellent starting point and an admirable introduction.
