• Professor Hynes's book deserves to be set alongside the long-standing masterpiece on the latter part of the same period, George Dangerfield's The Strange Death of Liberal England... It is done so ruthlessly well that Edwardian England will never recover its air of golden repose before the deluge.

    Michael Foot, Evening Standard
  • Original and important.. It is a most impressive survey and succeeds in bringing coherent conceptual organization to a formidable mass of material.

    Steven Marcus, Atlantic Monthly
  • This is a delightful book... often witty in its turn of phrase and often original in its own turn of mind.

    Marghanita Laski, Saturday Review
  • An excellent account of the origins of our present intellectual and moral climate

    Malcolm Muggeridge, Observer
  • There will be many more studies of the age. But few of them are likely to be so well-constructed and compulsively readable as The Edwardian Turn of Mind

    Michael Holroyd, New York Times Book Review
