This book contains a fascinating treatise on the English King, Edward VII. It is not intended as a biography, but is instead an attempt to provide a picture - and some slight interpretation - of his reign. This volume will appeal to those with an interest in Edward VII and English kingship in general, and would make for a worthy addition to collections of related literature. The chapters of this book include: "e;The Pageant of Succession"e;, "e;An Uneasy Heritage"e;, "e;The Restless Years"e;, "e;Descensus Averni"e;, "e;Contact"e;, "e;The Fortress"e;, "e;The Sallies"e;, "e;Surrender"e;, "e;Sour-Apple Harvest"e;, "e;The Changing Empire"e;, and "e;A House in Order"e;. This book was first published in 1935, and is being republished now in an affordable, modern edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
