The Queen : Elizabeth II and the monarchy by Ben Pimlott( Book )

14 editions published between 2001 and 2012 in English and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

" This is the only book to take the present Queen seriously as the subject of historical biography , or to examine in depth the influences that formed her or the ideas she represents. Ben Pimlott described by Andrew Marr in the Independent as the best writer of political biography now writing treats the Head of State who has been uniquely placed at the centre of the national stage since childhood to the rigorous and objective scrutiny he has applied to major political personalities, using a wide range of new sources, including interviews, diaries and letters, and papers in the Royal Archives. The Queen looks at the social, political and psychological aspects of his subject in detail, as well as at the changing role of Monarchy in the British Constitution. In the process, the book displays all the author's formidable analytic and narrative skills, and provides a gripping yet sensitive account of one of the most publicised yet least known figures of our time. It is vital reading for all those who care about public life in Britain's past, present and to come

"This book is the first to take a close historical look at Ken Livingstone's London. It examines the development of London governance from the demise of the Greater London Council to the establishment of the Greater London Authority." "The authors investigate the working of Mayor and Assembly, unravel the underlying politics of London and explore policy debates about transport, crime, and economic development. Finally they pose a question of key importance, not just to Londoners, but also to those interested in urban governance throughout the world: to what extent can the creation of new institutions and instruments of government give a major city the sense of being a political community?"--Jacket
