Restless Republic

Britain without a Crown

«

‘Her narrative brims with life, colour, humour and humanity … A dazzling achievement, and I loved every pageDominic Sandbrook, Sunday Times

‘In this ceaselessly fascinating account of one of the most epochal events in the country’s history, the deserved winner of the Pol Roger Duff Cooper prize, Anna Keay skilfully delves beneath the well-worn cliches about the Commonwealth and brings a time of quiet, uncertain and ultimately fruitless revolution to vivid life. It is hard to imagine a better examination of the Protectorat’ Alexander Larman, Observer

‘This is an exceptional book about an exceptional timemeticulously researched and deftly drawn character studies … A triumph’ John Adamson, author of The Noble Revolt

An exceptional feat of imaginative engagement. Never have the kingless years been made so vivid, and never has vividness contributed so much to the understanding of them. Keay has brought off an ingenious literary experiment… An entrancing achievementBlair Worden, TLS

‘Wonderful…. Tells the story of how the British and Irish people came to be who they are’ Clive Myrie

‘Deft, confident, deeply learned and provocative’ Rory Stewart

‘[A] vivid panorama … Keay conjures up with nuance and panache the single most fascinating decade in the history of Britain and Ireland, revealing it to be at once weirdly ancient and strangely modern’ Paul Lay, The Times

‘Keay offers us a world turned upside down; but also a world made real. That’s a remarkable achievementAdrian Tinniswood, Sunday Telegraph *****

‘Readers both expert and casual will revel in seeing this period brought to noisy, brash, colourful [life] by the skilled pen of a natural storyteller’ Aspects of History
