I found this book extremely disappointing The idea of aping the Lytton Strachey model of picking several prominent people from the Victorian period and arguing for their value and relevance is good although it has been done before eg by A N Wilson What lets this book down is a the narrow range of source material used to inform the book b the limited and unimaginative choice of subjects c the awkward prose style and d the lack of depth of analysisThe chapters on such well known and obvious subjects such as Peel Palmerston Disraeli and Gladstone are little than indifferent student essays It does not get much better when the author considers ueen Victoria and Prince Albert There is some repetition and awkward cross referencing in many of the chapters which again read like the sort of thing an A Level student would write The essay on W G Grace was very convoluted in terms of constructing a narrative from the statistical careerIn terms of subjects although I found the essays on Sleeman and Dicey informative I found myself asking whether they were really worthy to be placed in the same category as say Gladstone or even General GordonI have a big problem with the fact that there are no women in Mr Rees Mogg s list other than the ueen herself There are several really prominent figures who surely deserve a place instead of someone like Napier For example what about either or both of the two Marys Mary Seacole and Mary Kingsley They brought a fresh and important perspective to the Victorian world view with their involvement in the care of those involved in the imperial wars and the way that they challenged assumptions about race and genderThis is miles from being an academic book If it were to work as what has been called entry level history then the reader needs to be properly directed to authoritative and up to date sources that enable further study This is not the case here The bibliography is very limited and does not even include the Lytton Strachey works that Mr Rees Mogg is at pains to criticiseThere are sadly a number of factual errors For example Gladstone is supposed to have fought and defeated the Boers in South Africa p283 He did not The Boers of the Transvaal defeated a British force at Majuba Hill and therefore won what is called the First Boer War in 1881 Four pages later General Gordon is given a knighthood wrong and in the essay on Gordon itself he is described as the leader of a small British force fighting against all the odds in the Sudan Wrong again Gordon was besieged in Khartoum with a garrison of Egyptian and Sudanese troopsI regret being critical because I uite admire the author for his courteous and considered demeanour but this is not a good book and the cynic in me feels that if it had been written by someone who is not a public figure it would never have been published Sad La belle au bois dormant used to inform the book b the limited and No Breaking My Heart Barefoot William Beach #5 unimaginative choice
