The authorized history of the Bank of England by David Kynaston, Britain's leading social historian.

The Bank of England is now more than 320 years old, and for the vast majority of that time it has been central in British history, with an increasingly high profile in recent years. Before now no modern, authoritative, and accessible single-volume history has existed, and David Kynaston's account has been written with the Bank's cooperation and with complete access to its archives.

Kynaston's approach, as in his wonderful and bestselling Tales of a New Jerusalem series, is essentially chronological, with a narrative that does full justice to the leading episodes, characters, and themes. It is a history that gives proper treatment to important debates over the years about the Bank's purpose and modes of operation, while also drawing on a huge amount of original research. Kynaston covers the founding of the Bank in 1694 in the midst of the English financial revolution, through wars and financial crises, ending in 2013.

The Bank of England has a largely unknown but fascinating history. Till Time's Last Sand offers an authoritative, insightful, yet accessible portrait of one of the world's key institutions.
