5 Reviews
Prominent English social critic Peter Hitchens writes of the period between the death of Winston Churchill and the funeral of Princess Diana, a time he believes has seen disasterous changes in English life. The Abolition of Britain is bitingly witty and fiercely argued, yet also filled with somber appreciation for what the idea of England has always meant to the West and to the world.

User Review  - Frank Roberts - Goodreads

An eulogy for the Britain that was, and a warning to America, which is suffering from the same ailments. Saddened me to read it, but also bracingly refreshing to hear plain truths. Read full review
