Queen Anne by Edward Gregg

The reign of Queen Anne was a period of significant progress for the country, but the Queen has received little credit for these achievements. This biography seeks to shatter the image of a weak and ineffective monarch and establish her as a personality of integrity and invincible stubbornness. This revised edition includes a new foreword by the author. 'The best kind of biography, scholarly but sympathetic, as well as highly readable.' John Kenyon, 'Observer' Edward Gregg was professor of history at the University of South Carolina.


Edward Gregg... is completely equipped to write the definitive biography, and he has triumphantly succeeded. J.P. Kenyon, Times Literary Supplement A thoughtful and... authoritative study, easily the best thing we have on the Queen. Angus McInnes, History The best kind of biography, scholarly but sympathetic, as well as highly readable. The Observer With the appearance of this volume, a generation of revision in Queen Anne studies comes to fruition. Henry Horwitz, American Historical Review Bold... startling... imaginative and persuasive... will command the attention of all students of the period. G.C. Gibbs, London Review of Books
