Product description

Review

A lucid and handsomely illustrated narrative, from the Saxon dawn of England to the Cameron Government (The Times)

Full of stand-out facts ... Absolutely fascinating ... I've learnt an awful lot (Richard Bacon, BBC Radio 2)

Let Jenkins sweep you through England's history, painting a vivid picture of this country's green and pleasant land (City AM)

Where Jenkins excels is in his very journalistic approach ... The historical events are joined up, and work as narrative (Time Out)

Immediately accessible (Prospect)

This is traditional, kings-and-things, great-men history with all its dates and famous quotations in place ... it's jolly good ... Jenkins has a newspaper columnist's aphoristic verve ... judgements are crisp (Spectator)

Entertaining (Sunday Times)

Full of good writing and lively anecdotes ... worth perusing for pleasure and food for thought (New Statesman)

A characteristically bold, wry, fluent, combative gallop through English history (Max Hastings)

Book Description
