Sinopsis: This text tells the story of Britain, from the earliest recorded Celtic times to the era of Margaret Thatcher. The monarchy, Parliament, the Church and other institutions are discussed within a social context, as factors which affect the everyday lives of ordinary people.
"A remarkable achievement... His book should be read by anyone, anywhere, who cares about Britain's national past, national identity or national prospects" (David Cannadine Independent on Sunday)
"Our forebears had the Bible and Pilgrim's Progress. We have Stephen Hawking and Delia Smith. This book, for British people, has that kind of status. It is an instant classic... I have been reading it with unalloyed admiration and delight" (A.N. Wilson Evening Standard)
"Elegantly written, beautifully illustrated and scrupulously fair... Classic popular history" (Andrew Roberts Mail on Sunday)
"His narratives stream along, his judgements are sharp and generally fair... Essential reading" (Linda Colley The Times)
"A triumph... The Story of Britain succeeds better thatn any other contemporary survey in conveying a sense of British identity" (Amanda Foreman Independent)
