England holds an endless fascination for me and I never tire of finding yet another book, yet another look at a familiar or not so familiar period or event. January Hitler comes to power After a meteoric rise to power at the head of his Nazi Party and a power struggle with German President Paul von Hindenburg, Adolf Hitler was appointed to the position of chancellor on January 30, Oliver Cromwell of course tells his portraitist to paint him warts and all. Cromwell rose from obscure and violent origins through a life abroad — sometime soldier, sometime merchant — to become England's top go-to man, the prime maker-and-breaker of fortunes and spines, secretly hated and despised, especially by aristocrats.

Elizabeth I is — inevitably — "Good Queen Bess". The text is undoubtedly morale boosting propaganda, but it is a fascinating read. The ambiguous Cromwell is a character who fits Mantel's particular strengths. Jenkins is one of the liveliest commentators at work in Britain, always worth reading and pleasingly contrarian.

Of course, it's a force for good. The Liberal Democrats — four of whose six leaders have come from Scotland — agonise. It is a humor that may be crystallized by hunger and sorrow and tears. There is a well-judged assessment of the significance of Margaret Thatcher in Britain's postwar decline. We were with his wife, Carol. He believed in our founding documents.
