Summary
Schama completes his three-volume history of Britain to accompany the BBC TV series. This period, 1770-2000, covers a variety of themes and key British characters. First, the 'Romantic generation' turned Nature into a revolutionary force, followed by the creative Victorians seeking a better world.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: This work takes us from the mid-1770s when the country was intoxicated by a great surge of political energy through to the massive advances of technology and industrialisation during the Victoria era, and the burgeoning of the British Empire.
