14 editions published between 2001 and 2012 in English and held by 256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In The Queen, Ben Pimlott creates a richly detailed, compelling portrayal of Elizabeth II - the individual, the institution, and the icon. Written with the cooperation of Buckingham Palace, this distinguished biography is enriched by unprecedented access to government and palace archives, as well as interviews with dozens of persons close to the queen, including Princess Margaret; the archbishop of Canterbury, Lord Runcie; Lord Charteris, the queen's longtime private secretary; and Hardy Amies, the royal dressmaker, and by access to the private diaries of Jock Colville, who served as private secretary to both the queen and Winston Churchill. The result is a penetrating examination that goes far beyond the typical royal biography." "He explores the social, political, and psychological influences that shaped the queen's personality and the ideas she represents, Pimlott brings an illuminating perspective to the queen's relationship with her prime ministers, and he offers an intriguing view of the phenomenon of the monarchy itself - and of its future."--BOOK JACKET

In this book the author explores the origins of the English Christmas, and traces how the English have spent Christmas from the Middle Ages onwards

"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?"--BOOK JACKET

Orwell's England : the Road to Wigan Pier in the context of essays, reviews, letters and poems selected from the Complete works of George Orwell by George Orwell( Book )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Much of George Orwell's best writing, brought together in this magnificent new collection, is concerned with England, a country that he found both endearing and frustrating." "In the perceptive The English People, he lists the national characteristics as 'suspicion of foreigners, sentimentality about animals, hypocrisy, exaggerated class distinctions, and an obsession with sport'. The Road to Wigan Pier, his blistering account of poverty in the north of England, and his essays on class and the horrors of life at private school violently attack what he famously called 'the most class-ridden country under the sun'. Yet other writings here also ruminate on the merits of cricket, gardening, roast dinners, pubs, cups of tea and seaside postcards, showing Orwell's attitude to Englishness in all its lively complexity."--Jacket
