The Decline and Fall of the British Aristocracy

review ´ eBook or Kindle ePUB Ö David Cannadine review The Decline and Fall of the British Aristocracy 103 A generation of sons in the First World War but also much of their prosperity prestige and political significanceDeftly orchestrating an enormous array of documents and letters facts and statistics David Cannadine shows how this shift came about and how it was reinforced in the aftermath of the Second World War Astonishingly learned lucidly written and sparkling with wit The Decline. A very detailed analysis of the decline in wealth status and political power of the aristocracy in the United Kingdom in the century that began in the 1880s Cannadine demostrates that the extension of suffrage beginning with the Third Reform Act began a process that undermined hereditary wealth and privilege As a conseuence of land reform and higher taxes combined with a lengthy agricultural depression that began at roughly the same time landlord rentals ceased to be adeuate to support patrician lives of leisure That combination began to force the landed aristocracy to sell off its holdings To be sure other factors also played roles the two world wars the rise of a new class of wealthy industrial entrepreneurs and the opening of senior civil service and ministerial positions to middle class experts and professionals also contributed to the aristocracy s decline Cannadine has examined the progression of these changes in all of their many ramifications on UK society While the book is long it does not lag it is a story that keeps on unfolding Given the many ways in which the decline affected society it is not an exaggeration to say that the aristocracy s decline is intimately interwoven with British history of the same period one story cannot be told without the other An excellent and worthwhile study

review ´ eBook or Kindle ePUB Ö David Cannadine review The Decline and Fall of the British Aristocracy 103 And Fall of the British Aristocracy is a landmark study that dramatically changes our understanding of British social historyCannadine has produced a great book one that is comprehensive in its scope and of critical importance                                                                     London Review of Books. This is an amazing work of scholarship with an interesting argument but I sometimes felt battered by evidence The book could have been 200 pages shorter it is not 700 pages I felt that Cannadine never used 2 examples if 10 could do I had two other problems with the book 1 Cannadine uses acronyms and refers to people and events that he has never introduced An example is the Adullamite Revolt Still don t know what it was since I couldn t look it up at the time 2 the index is almost entirely peoples proper names almost no events or anything else This made it even harder to decide if the things mentioned HAD been mentioned before or were thrown in without explanation It is worth reading but be prepared to be frustrated with the endless examples

review ´ eBook or Kindle ePUB Ö David Cannadine review The Decline and Fall of the British Aristocracy 103 A brilliant multifaceted chronicle of economic and social change The New York TimesNo praise can be too high The New York Review of BooksAt the outset of the 1870s the British aristocracy could rightly consider themselves the most fortunate people on earth they held the lion's share of land wealth and power in the world's greatest empire By the end of the 1930s they had lost not only. I have recommended this several times to friends who I know normally don t read history or maybe biography at best and the reason I continue to do so is because for all the dry passages about the depression in land values and the long term effects of the industrial revolution Cannadine has cleverly managed to slip in biographical vignettes along the way of a whole slew of eccentric British aristocrats that are simply irresistible
