New History of EnglandeBook - 2008
Remember that you are an Englishman, and have consequently won first prize in the lottery of life. Cecil Rhodes's characteristically 19th-century confidence rings rather hollow as England enters the 21st century in somewhat reduced circumstances. In this new edition of a highly acclaimed history, leading historian Jeremy Black takes a cool and dispassionate look at the vicissitudes of more than two millennia of English history, steering his way through the labyrinthine complexities of historical narrative with elegance and clarity, providing a lively analysis of major events and personalities and important underlying themes. A New History of England will prove a fascinating and informative guide for anyone interested in history and heritage.
