9780192851741: The Oxford Illustrated History of Britain

This beautifully illustrated volume tells the story of Britain and its peoples over two thousand years, from the coming of the Roman legions to the present day.

Encompassing political, social, economic, and cultural developments throughout the British Isles, the dramatic narrative is taken up by ten leading historians who offer the fruits of the best modern scholarship to the general reader in authoritative form, illuminating their text with carefully chosen pictures and maps.

A vivid, sometimes surprising picture emerges of continuous turmoil and change in every period of Britain's history. By exploring the many ways in which Britain has shaped and been shaped by contact with Europe and the Wider world, this comprehensive book brings the modern reader face to face with the past and thus the foundations of modern British society.

About the Author:

Kenneth O. Morgan is Principal of the University College of Wales, Aberystwyth.

Review:

`the best buy of the year in historical publishing. It belongs in every school satchel, on every student's desk, in every library's catalogue...on everyone's coffee table' Peter Clarke, History Today

`an essential part of the high culture of our times, something which every educated person will be expected to have read' Encounter

`Here is a book to intrigue the mind and gladden the eye.' Max Beloff, Art International

`This superb volume...far removed from those dull history books you had to plod through at school.' Manchester Evening News

`This is the definitive account of the Kings and Queens ... a treasure, superbly illustrated.' The Star

`a monumental work...superbly produced' The Plymouth Sunday Independent

`The appearance of this paperback edition...is greatly to be welcomed. Each chapter is the work of an expert in the period...Excellent value...teachers and pupils alike will find reward in its use.' James Halliday, History Teaching Review

`This beautifully printed, informative and clearly written volume, with its marvellous collection of over two hundred full colour and black and white illustrations, its clean-cut maps, geneological tables and splendid index' Leslie MacFarlane, University of Aberdeen, Catholic Family

`The book's strongest point is that it assumes virtually no prior knowledge of anything. If the intention was to encourage people to find out more about what is often an unnecessary dull academic field, then it is for the most part a success.' Borehamwood and Radlett Advertiser
