Admiral Lord Horatio Nelson was a colourful and complex character, whose supremely successful naval career quickly attained legendary status. By 1803 he was Britain's paramount hero and already maimed with the loss of an arm and blind in one eye. He returned to war when called back in May and spent a further two years at sea before dying at the battle of Trafalgar in 1805. Today, two centuries after his death, the 'immortal memory' of Nelson endures. In this book, leading historians provide a radical reappraisal of his life and times.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Praise for History and the Media:

'interesting and illuminating essays on diverse aspects of this recent cultural and intellectual revolution [the flourishing of history in the media]. - The Sunday Telegraph

History made and in the making, and the time-loops it both creates and follows, prove endlessly fascinating in these writings.Financial Times Magazine

Praise for What is History Now?:

'At last, What is History? gets the successor it deserves...extremely readable and highly stimulating.' - Roy Porter

'...destined to become a must-have text for today's history students.' - Tristram Hunt, BBC History Magazine

'...he has assembled a distinguished team who convey, with spirit and lucidity, the scale and excitement of discovery that 40 years of specialization has produced.' - Blair Worden, Sunday Telegraph

'...should prove invaluable to graduate students and scholars...' - Claude Ury, History: Reviews of New Books

'Readers will find reliable and insightful information presented without recourse to jargon.' - E. A. Breisach, Choice

'A fresh look at the icon .. a thought-provoking book.' - John Crossland, The Times Higher Education Supplement

'All the essays in the Cannadine collection share the recognition that the Nelson legend itself is a topic for investigation. And like the best collected essays, a major effect of Admiral Lord Nelson: Context and Legacy will be in inspiring other historians to future work - and not just on Nelson. For this reason the work is relevant for students in areas beyond naval and British history.' - H-Net Reviews (H-Albion)
