Book Number: 42322
I. B. Tauris 1993 8vo hardcover 208pp index, b/w illus. very good / very good d/w. Book Description: Is the British monarchy an absurd anachronism or the lynchpin of the nation state? Is the Royal Family the guardian of our national heritage or has it, in fact, been responsible for the decline of Britain by promoting the idea of the Great British historical theme park?nnWith the current shenanigans and revelations involving the royals, much of the mystique that has surrounded the monarchy over the centuries has been stripped away.nnIn this controversial book, Stephen Haseler argues that, as a result, a British republic is now inevitable. He calls for immediate action to ensure a smooth transition of power during the present queen's lifetime, and vividly conjures up life in a Republic of Britain - for the Royal family, its court and courtiers, the peerage and the church, and above all ordinary people.
