Paperback English. GaveKal Research. 2013. ISBN: 9789889975241. 182pp. In good condition. When Lord Salisbury was asked by Queen Victoria to consider a reform, he famously replied: "Change? Your majesty, aren't things bad enough as they are?" Of course, it is in the nature of conservatives to look askance at change. But sometimes, change is thrust upon us; and in that regard, turn of the century periods tend to be particularly traumatic. Think of a man who fell asleep for 30 years in 1790. Our sloth would have woken up to a very different world in 1820 (France was no longer the dominant European power, Britain was rapidly expanding her global reach, Spain had become a has-been, the United States was experimenting with a new form of government...).
