Between 1890 and 1914 the City of London was all dominant as Britain's legendary gold standard reigned supreme across the globe. Golden Years anatomises an elite at the height of its powers. Combining brilliant scholarship with high entertainment, and drawing on an unparalleled range of original sources, David Kynaston brings the city triumphant into the mainstream of British and world history.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"[An] enthralling history...He illustrates it with rich anecdotes, an extraordinary range of sources, and lively writing. It is a wonderful piece of work" * Financial Times *
"Overflows with lines that leap off any front page today...Great history" * New Statesman & Society *
"His City towers over the Thames basin, an ant hill of energy, speculation and greed. The story is never dry, for Kynaston tells it as human drama...This is economic history as its most glittering" * The Times *
