They made Britain Great. Now it's our turn.

Many associate the Victorian era with austere social attitudes and filthy factories. But in this bold and provocative book, Jacob Rees-Mogg - leading Tory MP and prominent Brexiteer - takes up the story of twelve key figures to paint a very different picture of the age, one of bright ambition, bold self-belief and determined industriousness.Whether through Peel's commitment to building free trade, Palmerston's deft diplomacy in international affairs, or Brunel?s incredible engineering feats, the Victorians transformed the nation and established Britain as a preeminent global force.

As we celebrate the 200th anniversary of Queen Victoria's birth, and as Britain prepares to liberate herself from the European Union, it is essential that we remember the spirit, drive and values of the Victorians who forged modern Britain, as we consider our future as a nation.
