5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book.
If you are interested in facts about Britain and Ireland you will like this book, it is a factual book, but not a tour guide.

2.0 out of 5 stars the celtic fringe
Just great for a history of the IRA. Good, too, for the Irish names for lots of villages in Ireland, just in case you have never heard of their English names. But if you are interested in Arnside or Addingham, look elsewhere.

4.0 out of 5 stars Balance, 20 Nov 2012
This review is from: Brewer's Britain and Ireland (Hardcover)
I have to disagree with Mr Mercer. In any book of reasonable size, there must be omissions. Perhaps there are somewhat more places of Celtic origin and fewer Anglo-Saxon ones that he would like, but I am of Irish decent and find both sides fascinating. With a near-obsession with things Scottish I find the balance near perfect. Most but not all of the places I am interested in are here, with just enough detail to sate my immediate curiosity and spark off a drive to discover more. One welcome thing is the emphasis on smaller rural communities; London is dismissed in just ten pages, although many of its villages have their own entries; again, a nice balance.
Overall, recommended to all.
