Matthew Dennison - The Queen
An elegant and magisterial new biography of Her Majesty The Queen.
'A worthy and balanced overview of the Queen's life. Dennison is especially good on her childhood... Quietly, tactfully, tastefully reverent' The Times
For millions of people, both in Britain and across the world, Elizabeth II is the embodiment of monarchy.
In this brand-new biography, Matthew Dennison traces her life and reign across an unprecedented era.
Stylish in its writing and nuanced in its judgements, The Queen charts the joys as well as the disappointments of a remarkable royal life. It also assesses the achievement of a woman regarded as the champion of a handful of 'British' values endorsed - if no longer practised - by the bulk of the nation: service, duty, steadfastness, charity and stoicism.
