Book Description

The Crisis of Conservatism 1880-1914 offers a new interpretation of Conservative politics in the period 1880-1914 and comes to the startling conclusion that, but for the intervention of the First World War, there may well have been a 'Strange Death of Tory England.'


'Although E.H. Green's excellent new book does not once mention John Major, it is impossible not to notice coincidences between his plight five years from the end of the century and Arthur Balfour's five years from its start.' - The Times

`This massively researched study offers an impressive re-appraisal of British politics in the late Victorian and Edwardian eras ... This is a powerfully sustained argument, based on prodigious learning, and unfolded with elegance, lucidity and wit.' - David Cannadine

Shortlisted for the 1995 Longman/History Today Book of the Year Award

'This is a welcome paperback edition of Euan Green's monograph originally published in 1995...a well-written, clearly organised text...' - Alan O'Day,Reviews in History
