Description:
They built a nation. 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 - Conservative MP and prominent Brexit advocate - takes up the story of twelve landmark 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 Pugin's uplifting architectural feats, the Victorians transformed the nation and established Britain as a preeminent global force.

Now 200 years since the birth of Queen Victoria, 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.
