Synopsis

With increasingly more people wondering about the future of Britain, there has never been a better time for a straightforward and understandable account of the country's past. This concise guide to British history goes beyond a mere presentation of the facts, dates and events to explain why the British behave the way they do, how they feel about their own identity, and what the future holds for this little island. From the Black Death to Black Monday, from the Corn Laws to Council Tax, this erudite and accessible book brings history to life, providing new insight into the complex roots that make Britain such a singular country.
