    DescriptionThomas Babington Macaulay's "History of England" was a phenomenal Victorian best-seller defining a nation's sense of self, its triumphant rise to a powerfully homogenous nation built on a global empire and its claim to be the modern nation, marking the route to civilization for all others. In this book Catherine Hall explores the emotional, intellectual, and political roots of Zachary Macaulay, the leading abolitionist, and his son Thomas' visions of race, nation, and empire. The contrasting moments of evangelical humanitarianism and liberal imperialism are read through the writings and careers of the two men.

    Review quote
    "If Hall's book inspires some readers to turn back to Macaulay's essays and "History of England", all the better."--Jacob Heilbrunn, "The Daily Beast" --Jacob Heilbrunn "The Daily Beast "
