Part of an eight-volume series providing short biographies of men and women from Roman to Victorian times, Who's Who in Early Hanoverian Britain spans the period from the death of Queen Anne in 1714 to the outbreak of the French Revolution in 1789. These 75 years witnessed two Jacobite risings, the evolution of cabinet government, major additions to the British Empire despite the loss of the American colonies, and at home the stirrings of radical reform - it was the age of The Enlightenment. This volume contains over 190 short biographies of eminent personalities: the range is extensive, embracing royalty, politicians, philosophers, poets, artists, writers and inventors. Each entry places the subject in the context of their age and evokes what was distinctive and interesting about their personality and achievement. The biographies are arranged in a broadly chronological rather than alphabetical sequence so that the reader may easily browse from one contemporary to the next. The index, with its many cross-references, reveals further linkages between contemporaries. Each volume is a portrait of an age, presenting history in a biographical form which complements the conventional approach.
