Descripción Oxford University Press, New York, 2000. Hardcover. Estado de conservación: New. Estado de la sobrecubierta: New. 1st Edition. No Flaws or Blemishes but minimal retail handling; Still Gift Quality. Dust Jacket with price is in a new clear protective Mylar sleeve. First Edition, Later Printing. ---- When did British history begin, and where will it all end? These controversial issues are tackled head-on in Norman Davies's polemical and persuasive survey of the four countries that in modern times have become known as the British Isles. Covering 10 millennia in just over a thousand pages, from "Cheddar Man" to New Labour, Davies shows how relatively recently the English state was formed--no earlier than Tudor times--and shows, too, how a sense of Britishness emerged only with the coming of empire in the 18th and 19th centuries.

Descripción Oxford, 1999. Hardcover. Estado de conservación: New. Estado de la sobrecubierta: New. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. This copy is new; still sealed in publisher's original plastic wrap. This is a heavy book and would likely require additional postage to ship overseas. A history of Britain "which repeatedly connects . . . developments with parallel events on the Continent. The Celtic Supremacy in the last centuries B.C. is presented in the light of a Celtic world stretching all the way from Iberia to Asia Minor. Roman Britain (which covered less than half of the British Isles) is seen not as a unique or insular phenomenon but is compared to the other frontier regions of the Roman Empire, such as Germany. The Viking Age is viewed not only through the eyes of the invaded but from the standpoint of the invaders themselves -- Norse, Danes, and Normans. Plantagenet England is seen, like the Kingdom of Jerusalem, as an extension of medieval France. The purpose of this 'integrationist' approach is to challenge the traditional nationalist picture of 'eternal England' -- a unique country formed at an early date by Anglo-Saxon kings which evolved in isolation and, except for the Norman Conquest, was only marginally affected by Continental affairs. Instead, a new picture of the Isles emerges, one of four countries -- England, Ireland, Scotland, and Wales -- constantly buffeted by Continental storms and repeatedly transformed by them."

Descripción Titles Distributed by Oxford University Press (Australia and New Zealand), Australia, 2000. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. 236 x 170 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Written by one of the most brilliant and provocative historians at work today, The Isles is a revolutionary narrative history that takes a new perspective on the development of Britain and Ireland, looking at them not as self-contained islands, but as an inextricable part of Europe. At every stage, The Isles connects offshore development with parallel events on the Continent. This richly layered history begins with the Celtic Supremacy in the last centuries BC, which is presented in the light of a Celtic world stretching all the way from Iberia to Asia Minor. Roman Britain is seen not as a unique phenomenon but as similar to the other frontier regions of the Roman Empire, such as Germany. The Viking Age is viewed not only through the eyes of the invaded but from the standpoint of the invaders themselves--Norse, Danes, and Normans. Plantagenet England is perceived, like the Kingdom of Jerusalem, as an extension of medieval France. In the later chapters, Davies follows the growth of the United Kingdom and charts the rise and fall of the main pillars of Britishness --the Royal Navy, the Westminster Parliament, the Constitutional Monarchy, the Aristocracy, the Protestant Supremacy, the British Empire, the imperial economy and sterling area, and the English Language. The book ends with the crisis confronting Britain now--the emergence of the European Union. As the elements that make up the historic Britishness dissolve, Davies shows how public confusion is one of the most potent factors in this process of disintegration. As the Republic of Ireland prospers, and power in the United Kingdom is devolved, he predicts that the coming crisis in the British State may well be its last. This holistic approach challenges the traditional nationalist picture of a thousand years of eternal England --a unique country formed at an early date by Anglo-Saxon kings which evolved in isolation and, except for the Norman Conquest, was only marginally affected by continental affairs. The result is a new picture of the Isles, one of four continents--England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales--constantly buffeted by continental storms and repeatedly transformed by them. Illuminated by the same clarity and piercing originality that distinguished Europe: A History, The Isles will become an agenda-setting book, one that will encourage a reassessment of what it means to be British while sparking debate about ideas of national identity and sovereignty.
