Irrepressible Adventures with Britannia is the latest addition to Wm Roger Louis's stimulating and acclaimed series, Adventures with Britannia. It draws upon a distinguished array of writers and scholars - historians, political scientists, journalists, novelists, biographers and English literature specialists - to guide the reader through a fascinating labyrinth of British culture, history and politics. Together, they provide a unique insight into the pivotal themes, political, literary and cultural, which have shaped British state and society. Including a comparison of A.J.P. Taylor and Hugh Trevor-Roper by Adam Sisman, a new appraisal of Prince Albert by Rosemary Hill, an assessment of Keats by Ferdinand Mount and a Diamond Jubilee portrait of Elizabeth II by Max Hastings, this book provides a rich mix of original ideas, historical and literary allusion, personality and anecdote, which together provide an intellectual adventure into the mainsprings of modern British and international society.
