Overview

"A complete history of England from its earliest times right up to the present day printed in one volume. It is written in a lively and literate style that pinpoints all the essentials of English history." "It begins with the Old Stone Age and finishes with Britain's continued military action in Iraq. In between, all the major periods are fully described, including the Roman Saxons, Vikings, and Normans, and the colorful power struggles of the medieval kings and queens. The Reformation, the Renaissance and the Civil War are discussed, as well as the consequences of the Industrial Revolution and urbanism, and the establishment of an Empire which encompassed a quarter of the human race. In the twentieth century the Empire was transformed into the Commonwealth, two victorious but costly World Wars have been fought, the Welfare State was established, and England became a part of the European Community." Illustrated with historical maps and line drawings, A Traveller's History of England offers insight into the country's past and present and into the English character and culture. An invaluable book for all those who want to know more about a nation whose impact upon the rest of the world has been profound.
