Books By Author Mr David Cannadine

George V by Mr David Cannadine George V, Hardback (December 2014)

For a man with such conventional tastes and views, George V had a revolutionary impact. Almost despite himself he marked a decisive break with his flamboyant predecessor Edward VII, inventing the modern monarchy, with its emphasis on frequent public appearances, family values and duty. The author offers an account of his reign.

Christendom Destroyed by Mr David Cannadine Christendom Destroyed, Hardback (July 2014)

A study of 16th and 17th century Europe and the fundamental changes which led to the collapse of Christendom and established the geographical and political frameworks of Western Europe as we know it. From peasants to princes, no one was untouched by the spiritual and intellectual upheaval of this era.

Undivided Past by Mr David Cannadine Undivided Past, Paperback (April 2014)

Great works of history have so often had at their heart a wish to sift people in ways that have been profoundly damaging and provided intellectual justification for terrible political decisions. This title presents an agonised attempt to understand how so much of the writing of history has been driven by a fatal desire to dramatize differences.
