This work takes us from the mid-1770s when the country was intoxicated by a great surge of political energy through to the massive advances of technology and industrialisation during the Victoria era, and the burgeoning of the British Empire.

Simon Schama was art critic for the New Yorker from 1995 to 1998, and was awarded a C.B.E. in the 2001 New Year's Honours List. His most recent book, Simon Schama's Power of Art, was published to critical acclaim in 2006.Review:
The third and last part of Simon Schama's highly readable and utterly engaging history of Britain. Like all great narrative historians, Schama is above all else an original prose stylist, fully in command of the evocative language as well as the source materials of historical description. This is also history conceived on a truly grand, epic scale, taking the reader from the Age of Enlightenment and revolutions in political and economic life, right up to Britain's post-imperial twilight at the close of the last century. Another BBC book that will be big at Christmas, not least because the entire 15-part series is to be repeated from September. And as this is the third volume, it is the one that everyone will buy to complete the set.
