This book is a pleasure to read. It is written in a clear and concise manner. It is presented in a way so that even someone who is not familiar with local history will find both accessable and useful. The introduction gives a very clear description of what local history is and what it can (possibly should) include.

The format of the book means that one can either dip into it to find out about one time period. Alternatively it can be read from start to finish (as I have done) to get an overview of the social and economic history of England from Saxon period to present day. The 'Further Reading' sctions are extremely useful. The author also gives lists of documentation to be found and can be used for loca history in each time period.

An excellent book for the novice to local history, but would also be useful for a local historian who wants to extend their interest.

Verified Purchase
This is an excellent book. It is probably the best introduction to English Local History ever published. I had borrowed a copy from a library (and renewed it several times), but I am constantly referring to it and so just had to purchase my own copy. It's out of print, so this had to be a used book. I bought it from Better World Books. It was sensibly priced, in good condition and delivered promptly. I would wholeheartedly recommend both the book and the seller.
