New History of England By Jeremy Black
Book/Novel Author: Jeremy Black
Book/Novel Title: New History of England
“Remember that you are an Englishman, and have consequently won first prize in the lottery of life.” Cecil Rhodess characteristically 19th-century confidence rings rather hollow as England enters the 21st century in somewhat reduced circumstances. In this new edition of a highly acclaimed history, leading historian Jeremy Black takes a cool and dispassionate look at the vicissitudes of more than two millennia of English history, steering 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. A New History of England will prove a fascinating and informative guide for anyone interested in history and heritage. **
“Covers the most critical aspects of each era of English history and offers excellent analyses of both people and trends.” *Booklist* , on the first edition
