By the 1920s, the Victorians had come to inspire both awe of their achievements and ridicule of their hypocrisy. This ambitious biography charts the lives and careers of four men born into that era – and formed by it – who lived well into the 20th century and did much to shape it: the Puritan Home Secretary William Joynson Hicks; the gloomy, moralistic Dean of St Paul's, WR Inge; John Reith, the founder of the BBC; and the jingoistic historian Arthur Bryant.
