Praise for third edition:
'Jeremy Black's concise history of the British Isles is extremely comprehensive and eminently readable. It possesses a helpful focus on political developments, economic history, and technological change but also pays considerable attention to social and cultural issues. It is an admirable attempt at both synthesis and explication.' - Paul Deslandes, University of Vermont, USA
Review of the first edition:
'Do histories of Britain inevitably have to be histories of England? This is exactly where Jeremy Black comes into his own, for he delivers the history of the archipelago which he promises. . . the perspective of the work is wider and fuller than that of any other recent history. Black's work is also remarkable for the sense which it conveys of the power of broad social and cultural change.' - Times Educational Supplement
Jeremy Black's vigorous and fascinating study tells the story of a group of islands, their peoples, and their remarkable impact on the rest of the world. From the earliest pre-history right up to the present day, this stirring account describes the astonishingly varied stages through which the British Isles have passed to achieve their current identity.
Unlike most other texts, 'A History of the British Isles' is not just a history of England. Proper weight is given to all four, often fractious, components of the British Isles – England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales - providing the reader with an admirably balanced and absorbing narrative of an extraordinary shared past. Thoroughly revised and up-to-date, this timely third edition now contains fresh insights and incorporates more material on social and cultural history.
