Publisher's Summary

The fourth and last volume in Churchill's famous account spans 1815 to 1901. It closes when the British Empire is at its peak, with a staggering one-fifth of the human race presided over by the longest reigning monarch in British history: Queen Victoria.
In America he assesses the position of the "Great Republic" from slavery and secession to its position as a world superpower. He charts the rise of Germany and the unification of Italy and examines the situation in the Balkans in 1878, all of which had a deep impact not only on the war he was soon to fight, but on the geography of the European continent today.

Interesting book,100 yrs of Anglo-American history

Clearly described history without much "spin". As an engineering major in college, I was not exposed to much of the history of the Victorian age. Very good stuff!

Great insight into the past.

Though the biased must be understood it is a great way to get the feelings of the time in which you can not receive in today's current literature on the topic.
