Product description

Review

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

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

A handsome book ... full of the good judgements one might hope for from such a sensible and readable commentator, and they alone are worth perusing for pleasure and food for thought ... will sell by the truckload as Christmas approaches (Michael Wood New Statesman)

Immediately accessible (Prospect)

Dip into a chapter of an evening and 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)

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)
