Dominion: The History Of England From The Battle Of Waterloo To Victoria's Diamond Jubilee
- Global History
The road to Victoria
The twilight of Regency-era England saw the nation transition from a period of warfare and instability into the advances of the Victorian age. Master historian Peter Ackroyd charts this momentous age, beginning with the Battle of Waterloo in 1815 and ending with the death of Queen Victoria in January, 1901.
Ackroyd takes us from the accession of the profligate George IV to William IV whose reign saw political modernization and the abolition of slavery. But it was the accession of Queen Victoria that sparked an era of enormous scientific innovation and social progress. By the end of Victoria’s reign, it seemed that Britannia truly did rule the waves.
Dominion brings new context and vibrancy to one of England’s most pivotal historical eras.
