Somerset, Anne:  Ladies in Waiting: From the Tudors to the Present Day
Book Number: 40648
Phoenix Press August 28, 2005 8vo softcover 342pp very good. Far from being servants or decorative accessories in court, ladies-in-waiting competed for real positions of power--and many succeeded in their goals, sometimes betraying their queens in the process. A few even became royal mistresses, such as the rapacious Lady Castlemaine who amassed a fortune and flaunted her hold over King Charles I. Drawing on a wide variety of primary sources, including the diaries of such shrewd onlookers as Lady Cowper and Fanny Burney, bestselling author Anne Somerset provides a guide to the character, profligate or pious, of each court. This lively combination of entertaining anecdote and searching analysis is social history at its most colorful.

Haseler, Stephen:  The End of the House Windsor: Birth of a British Republic
Book Number: 42322
I. B. Tauris 1993 8vo hardcover 208pp index, b/w illus. very good / very good d/w. Book Description: Is the British monarchy an absurd anachronism or the lynchpin of the nation state? Is the Royal Family the guardian of our national heritage or has it, in fact, been responsible for the decline of Britain by promoting the idea of the Great British historical theme park?nnWith the current shenanigans and revelations involving the royals, much of the mystique that has surrounded the monarchy over the centuries has been stripped away.nnIn this controversial book, Stephen Haseler argues that, as a result, a British republic is now inevitable. He calls for immediate action to ensure a smooth transition of power during the present queen's lifetime, and vividly conjures up life in a Republic of Britain - for the Royal family, its court and courtiers, the peerage and the church, and above all ordinary people.
