5.0 out of 5 stars Witty, Elegant and Highly Entertaining, 10 Mar. 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: High Society in the Regency Period: 1788-1830 (Paperback)
I found this book a light and delicious souffle. Academic history it is not: but a great read for the general public who are interested in daily life, love, money - and all the things we all care about as much now as we did two hundred years ago - Yes, and Yes again. Full of amusing stories,witty, very well-researched and exactly what the author claims in her Preface. She writes "'High Society in the Regency Period' was never intended to be taken as a sociological survey: the aim of this book was to convey the mood of the Regency, to entertain my readers, and, perhaps, to enlighten a few." I am not at all surprised the hardback edition received so many flattering reviews from such authorities as Christopher Hibbert and Philip Zeigler. I quite agree with them!
