New History of England
'Remember that you are an Englishman, and have consequently won first prize in the lottery of life.'

Jeremy Black steers his way through the labyrinthine complexities of historical narrative with elegance and clarity, providing a lively analysis of major events and personalities and important underlying themes. He deals with the highly topical issue of England's position and relationship with Europe. A New History of England will prove a fascinating and informative guide for anyone interested in history and heritage.
