A Short History of England

A Short History of England

The Glorious Story of a Rowdy Nation

The heroes and villains, triumphs and disasters of English history are instantly familiar—-from the Norman Conquest to Henry VIII, Queen Victoria to the two world wars. But to understand their full sig­nificance we need to know the whole story.

 

A Short History of England sheds new light on all the key individuals and events in English histo­ry by bringing them together in an enlightening account of the country’s birth, rise to global promi­nence, and then partial eclipse. Written with flair and authority by Guardian columnist and LondonTimes former editor Simon Jenkins, this is the definitive narrative of how today’s England came to be. Concise but comprehensive, with more than a hundred color illustrations, this beautiful single-volume history will be the standard work for years to come.
