Overview

British History For Dummies by Se?n Lang

This book is a riotous, irreverent account of the people and events that have shaped Britain. Always getting those kings and queens confused? Never sure what happened when? Then you need this book. Inside you'll find rip-roaring stories of power-mad kings, executions, invasions, high treason, global empire building, and forbidden love — not bad for a nation of stiff upper lips!

  • Revised and expanded to include the historical parliamentary elections of 2010 and the British mission in Afghanistan
  • Accompanied by access to a timeline and 'Who's Who in British History' section on dummies.com
  • This new edition contains an 8-page color insert so you can see who, what and where the ensuing historical action takes place

I bought this book just to see how amusing it's interpretation of British History would be to a Briton. I find it very interesting and amusing. Too bad our history books in school were not written this way!!!!!

I was looking for a general overview of British history that would fill in some of the gaps in my existing knowledge---I wasn't expecting it to be so much fun! This book is highly engaging, humorous, and informative. The author clears up some of British history's most confusing topics (Wars of the Roses, for instance) with great one-liners and englightening explanations that are easy to remember. I highly recommend this book for those who knows nothing about British history and those who know just about everything; you can't finish this book without gaining something.

Ties centuries and millennia together in an interesting, concise manner. Helps with the facts that got lost or muddled. Tosses in interesting, but relevant issues and trivia.

For light entertainment and interesting, somewhat "different" bits of information about English history, this is an excellent choice!
