This beautifully illustrated volume tells the story of Britain and its people 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 upin turn by ten leading historians who offer the fruits of the best modern scholarship to the general reader in an authoritative form, illuminating their text with carefully chosen pictures and maps.A vivid, sometimes surprising picture emerges of a continuous turmoil of change in every period, and the wider social context of political and economic tension is made clear. But consensus, no less than conflict, is a part of the story: in focusing on elements of continuity down the centuries, theauthors bring out that special awareness of identity which has been such a distinctive feature of British society. By relating both these factors in the British experience, and by exploring the many ways in which Britain has shaped and been shaped by contact with Europe and the wider world, thislandmark work brings the reader face to face with the past, and the foundations of modern British society.The new edition, the first for almost twenty years, brings the story into the twenty-first century, covering the changes to British society and culture during the Blair years and the invasion of Iraq and its aftermath.… (mere)

Scholarly but dull and dry. Even when I've used it as a reference for point topics, I've never found it to be of great help or insight. I know it flies in the face of many who are far more versed in history than I, but it's one of my least favorite history books. ( )

As with all the Oxford books this one is a keen resource to have on your shelf if you love British history. ( )

In Roman times Britain had as many people as at its peak in the Middle Ages.   For four centuries it was an integral part of a single political system that stretched from Turkey to Portugal and from the Red Sea to the Tyne and beyond.
