Product Description


Since Alfred the Great united England in the 9th century CE, this northwestern European country has played a prominent role in world affairs. From its early days as the world's leading naval power - which enabled it to spread its influence over an area larger than one-fourth of the world's surface - to the period when it served as the center of the Industrial Revolution, England has long been one of the world's most influential countries. Newly updated and featuring striking full-color photographs, maps, and other accessible study features, "England" is a detailed exploration of the people, culture, history, geography, environment, economy, and government of this enduring nation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Offering 28 Oct 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Library Binding
As eloquent and articulate, yet gratifyingly easy to understand, as Mr. Allport's previous work ("Austria").

5.0 out of 5 stars Nonfiction at it's finest! 5 Nov 2002
By Evie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Library Binding
In a word, Mr. Allport is brilliant. I was first astounded by his critically acclaimed, "Austria" and was thrilled to see it followed up with "England". I can only hope that the rumors circulating about the conclusion of the trilogy, "France", are true, and that the book is still in the works.
Mr. Allport's works are simply a must read for history buffs and those who never go out on Saturday nights.
