A.L. Rowse called fellow-historian James Anthony Froude the 'last great Victorian awaiting revival'. The question of power is the problem that perplexes every age: in his historical works Froude examined how it applied to the Tudor period, and defended Carlyle against the charge that he held the doctrine that 'Might is Right'.
Froude applied his analysis of power to the political classes of his own time and that is why his writings are just as relevant today. The historian and the prophet look into the inner meaning of events - and that is precisely what Froude did - and so are able to make judgments which apply to ages far beyond their own. The last chapters imagine what Froude would have said had he been here today.

Keywords: Froude, historian, power, Tudors, politics, education, religion, capitalism, communism, trade unions
