For some reason it seems to me that each time I buy a few titles these days I m able to get them by subject usually at two While the title itself has an interesting tone to it the structure does not I commend how the author managed to categorize the personal accounts as the prologue or the end of an era commemorating the death of ueen Victoria home work life childhood and school travel and excursions military politics and narratives of the suffragettes before closing it with an epilogue Going through the personal accounts was enjoyable since it gives one a glimpse into the typically unheard stories of the destitute the underprivileged This time the ones in power have been relegated to the sidelines and we see the lives of the Edwardian British masses Given the multiple accounts by a few people perhaps the author could have written the book using a certain narrative by using an omniscient viewpoint before going to the specific ones The use of social history is a significant techniue and undertaking an archival work is a daunting task however the author seems to have put them together as an annotated bibliography rather than using a narrative that is interspersed with the personal accounts
