The complete set of all three paperback volumes of Simon Schama's compelling history of Britain. 'History clings tight but it also kicks loose' writes Simon Schama at the outset of his epic three-volume journey into Britain's past. Disruption as much as persistence is its proper subject. So although the great theme of British history seen from the twentieth century is endurance, it's counterpoint seen from the twenty-first must be alteration. Change - sometimes gentle and subtle sometimes shocking and violent - is the dynamic of Schama's unapologetically personal, grippingly written history, especially the changes that wash over custom and habit, transforming our loyalties. From early England and the Tudors through the British Wars of the 17th century to the rise and fall of the British Empire, award-winning historian Simon Schama illuminates British history through a variety of historical themes and key British characters. Historical figures from Cromwell to George Orwell, Christopher Wren to Churchill are all caught on the rich and teeming canvas on which Schama paints his brilliant portrait of the life of our people. Includes all three volumes in paperback: At the Edge of the World 3000BC-AD1603, The British Wars 1603-1776, The Fate of Empire 1776-2000.
