A history of England. Volume V, Dominion

Ackroyd, Peter, 1949-2018
Books
The penultimate volume of Peter Ackroyd's masterful 'History of England' series, 'Dominion' begins in 1815 as national glory following the Battle of Waterloo gives way to post-war depression, spanning the last years of the Regency to the death of Queen Victoria in January 1901. In it, Ackroyd takes us from the accession of the profligate George IV whose government was steered by Lord Liverpool, who was firmly set against reform, to the reign of his brother, William IV, the 'Sailor King', whose reign saw the modernization of the political system and the abolition of slavery.
