England, 1870-1914
By R. C. K. Ensor
Oxford University Press, 1936, 634 pp

One of the volumes in the "Oxford History of England" and probably the best treatment of the period now available. The author does not restrict himself to the political scene, but considers economic and social matters and intellectual and artistic currents. The book is distinguished by breadth of view and detachment.
