    Should England be independent from Scotland? May 1999. The Scots have their first opportunity in 300 years to elect their own parliament. In 2014 that referendum will finally take place.

    Random House 2013; US$ 17.62

    Simon Heffer's new book forms an ambitious exploration of the making of the Victorian age and the Victorian mind.

  • Like the Romanby Simon Heffer

    Faber & Faber 2012; US$ 27.69

    There were few more controversial British politicians of the twentieth-century than Enoch Powell.

The truth could hardly have been more different: that folksy feel masked the highest sophistication, that countrified air the most audacious experimentation. If, unlike his... more...

    'There is an old saying, 'Murder will out.' I am really unable to see why this should be so...' Israel Rank: The Autobiography of a Criminal (1907) inspired the classic Ealing film Kind Hearts and Coronets .
