Fifty Years the Queen

A Tribute to Elizabeth II on Her Golden Jubilee

Published September 2002

Description

The half-century since Elizabeth II’s coronation in 1952 has witnessed many changes, some for good and some for ill. Among these, she has been one of the few constants.

Fifty Years the Queen recounts her amazing life as Canada and the Commonwealth celebrate the Golden Jubilee of her accession to the throne. Elizabeth II is a figure whose faultless devotion to duty flourishes in an age of individual self-gratification. endowed with high spirits and a great sense of humour, she at the same time carries out her duties with unfailing dignity and decorum.

The special Golden Jubilee tribute is filled with many beautiful illustrations, including some rarely seen.
