Overview

'Roberts boldly dons Churchill's own mantle, setting out to continue where Churchill's four volumes left off, which was in 1901. The mantle fits ... an advocate of Churchillian eloquence' Mail on Sunday Andrew Roberts, Wolfson History prize-winner, brilliantly reveals what made the English-speaking people the preeminent political culture since 1900, and how what connects them is far greater than what separates them. This is an enthralling account covering the four world-historical struggles in which the English-speaking peoples have been engaged: the wars against German nationalism, Axis fascism, Soviet communism and fundamentalist terrorism. Authoritative and engrossing, A History of the English-Speaking Peoples also deals with the cultural, social and political history of the English global diaspora.

Reviews

It is a patriotic history, as lively and partisan as Macaulay's: full of detail, enriched by brilliant pen-portraits, opinionated and provocative. It will have some readers purring in happy agreement, and others tearing their hair in fury - Daily Telegraph Magnificently provoking ... a worthy successor to Churchill's history of the same subject ... this is a work of astonishing range and depth, combining as it does a polemical flair with sure-footed scholarship - New Statesman Roberts has produced a brilliant revisionist history of the English-speaking peoples. The book is rich in vivid characterisations of the major players. This is an exuberant book, by one of the Anglosphere's most accomplished historians - Literary Review
