Simon Jenkins has produced a superb, clear version of English history. Jenkins doesn't mess around with needless detail but gives the basic history in a narrative that is as enticing as it is beautifully produced. This should be the new textbook for beginners in English history and every true Brit should have a copy on their bookshelf.
