Editorial Reviews

Review

Named a Best Book of the Year by The Economist and The Times (UK)

“The deft portraits and detailed episodes Mr. Roberts provides in The Last King of America—drawing on a vast trove of documents newly digitized by the Royal Archives at Windsor Castle—bring into clear view the man at the center of it all, whose personality, principles and proper reputation have been too long obscured.”
—The Wall Street Journal

“A fair-minded portrait . . . [written] with insight and aplomb.”
—The Washington Post

“In Andrew Roberts, George has found his Boswell, but one with the wit and erudition of a Johnson. Britain’s most misunderstood monarch he may have been, but this biographer has entered into this conscientious king’s troubled mind with more than customary empathy. His superb concluding chapter is a paean to 'the nobility of George III.'”
—The American Spectator

“A compendious product of intricate investigation. Roberts has read everything. . . . The letters and diaries of delicious characters such as Fanny Burney and Lady Mary Coke are combed for color and detail, and troop movements and economic fluctuations are carefully reconstructed. It is a magnificent achievement.”
—The Spectator

“Vividly detailed . . . A capacious, prodigiously researched biography from a top-shelf historian.”
Kirkus (starred)

“Meticulously researched . . . An eye-opening portrait of the man and his times.”
—Publishers Weekly

“A practiced hand at thoroughly detailed histories and biographies, Roberts keeps the lengthy text vivid and engaging . . . A deep, expansive study not only of George III but also of the political and social complexities of England and the United States during his reign.”
—Library Journal

“[A] persuasive interpretation, supported by a wide range of sources and argued with keen insight into political realities . . . Important, serious and timely.”
—Times Literary Supplement
(UK)

“A handsome and thorough biography . . . Above all, Roberts has written a superlative political history of the period between 1760 and 1809.”
The New Criterion

“Roberts makes a strong revisionist case for the generally maligned George III in this engrossing, brilliant biography.”
—Prospect Magazine

“Roberts’s account is masterly, combining a compelling narrativeone has to keep turning the pages even though one knows the outcomewith analysis that is both cogent and incisive. He appears to have read everything that is in the mainstream and much that isn’t, including a wide range of archival sources. . . . [A] tremendous book.”
Literary Review

“Elegant and splendidly researched.”
—The Sunday Times (UK)

“Magisterial . . . George III is notorious for two reasons: losing America and going mad. Roberts provides a fresh and spirited account of both occurrences. . . . The result is a lengthy book that remains engaging throughout.”
—The Times (UK)

“As [Roberts's] outstanding books on Halifax, Salisbury and Churchill also demonstrate, he is a master of the biography. . . . Roberts systematically, cogently and helpfully reinterprets his subject’s role and reputation.”
—History Today

“Elegant and comprehensive . . . Roberts is our most prodigious biographer.”
—The Daily Mail

“Richly evidenced and scrupulously argued. . . . [The Last King of America] consolidates Roberts’s position as one of the greatest biographers in the English language today.”
Daily Telegraph

“Teems with detail, ideas and elegance. Roberts is a great writer—and this is one of his greatest achievements.”
—Aspects of History

“Superb . . . A book so diligently researched cannot fail to be rich in curious detail and amusing turns of phrase. There are plums on almost every page.”
The Oldie

“A powerful reappraisal.”
The Irish Post
