I am working on a history project about Britain and wanted a "helicopter view" really as a guide to picking up on subjects/periods that I would then follow in greater depth and detail, this certainly did the job for me. In fact, even if you are not a dedicated history fan, for an easy read if only to prepare you for a pub quiz night, well worth the price.

If you want an overview of the UK's and Ireland's history, that's your book. The text is easy to read and the book has many maps and pictures that make history easy and exciting.

This book is exactly the same as "The Penguin Atlas of British and Irish History" published a few years previously

This book is also smaller than the original too

Buy the previous issue - it's available for peanuts compared to this version

HASH(0x9d43bb74) out of 5 stars Excellent History book! 7 April 2008
By Anthony Balderrama - Published on Amazon.com
This history book is simply excellent. It is well laid out, clearly and passionately written, and is the absolute basis for British History in our home-schooling program. The maps and diagrams are well done, very interesting to investigate, and illustrate well the subjects covered. It is up-to-date, detailed, and the chapters are short and outlined well. Definitely the best British History book I could find, and I looked a lot!

HASH(0x9d44a45c) out of 5 stars Basically, an excellent historical atlas 3 Feb. 2010
By Eugene S. Pagano - Published on Amazon.com

This is not a narrative history as the title might suggest. It is really a historical atlas with good accompanying commentary and illustrations. As a historical atlas, it is superb.

This is a beautiful volume covering a huge time frame and scope of information. The maps and illustrations are lovely, and are excellent resources for analysis in university-level courses.

Love learning about European history. These are the countries some of my ancestors came from. The more I learn the more I want to know.
