Erudite, yet entertaining,
By A Customer
This review is from: English Social History: A Survey of Six Centuries (Penguin Classic History) (Paperback)
The classic of it's type - educational, but not dry. Not as overloaded as the social history of Hibbert, and adequately informative for the casual reader. Ripe with surprising trivia and always embracing the wider picture - but never laboured or self indulgent. This is the old-school of history writing at it's best, and anyone with a serious interest in history will have heard of it. If you read one such publication make it this.
