Description

Perilous Question features an eventful, violent often overlooked period of British history. On 7th June 1832, William IV reluctantly assented to pass the Great Reform Bill, under the double threat of the creation of 60 new peers in the House of Lords and of revolution throughout the country. This led to a total change in the way Britain was governed, a riotous two-year revolution that Antonia Fraser brings dramatically to life. Perilous Question is an exceptional work of narrative history, one that truly casts a distant mirror on events today.

Professional reviews

"International bestselling historian Antonia Fraser's new book brilliantly evokes a key period of political and social history: the passing of the Great Reform Bill of 1832 Praise for the author: ‘A writer whose command of sources, eye for detail, perception of character and shrewd judgment enable her to bring the past truthfully to life’ SUNDAY TELEGRAPH 'Drama, betrayal, religion and sex, it's all here, adorned by often fascinating, at times esoteric detail' GUARDIAN ‘Fraser brings to life the female stars circling the Sun King in an account that successfully combines erudition with gossipy stories of the kind the Versailles courtiers loved so much.' SUNDAY TIMES"
