If you're not too interested in history but want to 'give history a go' try this book and get really hooked on the English monarchy.
This book does a good job of covering, in a little over 300 pages a history of Britain of nearly two hundred years, a time of great change and importance in the political and cultural history of Britain, and covering two ruling dynasties. Clearly in covering such a long period in such a short book there is much that is authoritatively stated by the author without any consideration of alternatives, or any room for offering reasoning for the statements. That is to be expected in this type of book, and the book does not suffer for that, as it is specifically designed to be a history for general readers, and for those who may already be familiar with the material and want to read Mr Hutton's concise take on the subjects.
This book presents as a great read, and is engaging and interesting. The information is backed up with references to recent scholarly material, and there is a good section of further reading for those who would like to follow up. This is a really good history which focuses mainly on the political side of things, and is definitely recommended. This would be a great introduction for a reader new to the history or the period, and offers a good read to those for whom it is already familiar territory.
A good book, an useful one. I hope, with him i got a little bit more on british history.
