Format: Paperback
A summary history of England written in a very readable style. Although written in 1938 the chapters up to the twentieth century don't come across as dated in any way. Morton's Marxist perspective gives the narrative a purpose that is lacking in supposedly less ideological accounts. He explains the events in terms of their economic background, especially the ownership of land and property by different sections of society and the changing means and ownership of production. I would recommend this book to anyone who needs to understand English history as a rationally explained whole, rather than a list of "great men" and battles. Its a concise and readable account and should make a good frame of reference for anyone studying a particular period in more detail.

Very good background history book with a "people" slant that acts as a great basis for later more detailed histories.
