An Il­lus­trated In­tro­duc­tion to the Ge­or­gians

Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine - - THE GUIDE -

by Mike Ren­dell (Am­ber­ley, 96 pages, £9.99) Ex­am­in­ing the key events from 1714 to 1837, Ren­dell takes a swift look at the cul­ture and style of the era be­fore mov­ing on to the po­lit­i­cal scene, the growth of the em­pire, trade, trans­port, in­dus­try, recre­ation and leisure as well as the abo­li­tion move­ment. At just 96 pages, this is by no means an ex­haus­tive over­view but still works as a use­ful thumb­nail sketch of a fas­ci­nat­ing his­tor­i­cal pe­riod.
