Robertson begins the difficult task of chronicling the history of England with the ascension of George I. The years 1714 to 1815 comprise a period of history brimming with commanding personalities and significant events—the author treats all important subjects thoroughly, with an interesting section on constitutional growth and development.
About the Author
Sir Charles Grant Robertson (1869-1948) was a British historian and, under the pseudonym of Wymond Carey, novelist. He was known for being particularly long-winded and, despite some racy works, a rather remote person. His works include Religion and the Totalitarian State (1937) and Bolingbroke (1947). He was knighted in 1928.
