SAVILIAN DAVID OLDROYD-BOLT IN CONVERSATION WITH DR SIMON HEFFER ON THE AGE OF DECADENCE: BRITAIN 1880-1914.
David Oldroyd-Bolt interviews journalist, author and political commentator Dr Simon Heffer about his latest book, The Age of Decadence: Britain 1880-1914. The book, which has received exceptional notices from the Times, Telegraph, Spectator, Economist, Catholic Herald and many other publications, charts the decline of the aristocracy as a political force, the furore over Home Rule which eventually destroyed the Liberal Party, the consequences of the Third Reform Act. It is a remarkable evaluation of one of the most tumultuous eras of modern British history – an era not without parallels to our own age.
Signed copies of the book will be available following the talk.
