I found this incredibly useful for my studies, particularly the third section on representation and democracy 1832-1931. It's very clearly written and breaks downs the key areas of historical intepretation and analysis which you need to get a grip of inorder to achieve a top grade. As a previous reviewer has noted it may well be a little thinner on the detail than some A level texts, but there is more than enough to fill any exam essay several times over. My only quibble is that at the end of each of it's three main sections there are questions in the style of either AQA or Edexcel exam boards. However the Edexcel versions aren't correct, either they are source based questions when they shouldn't be or vice versa. But no matter, the content here is what counts. And it's very good.
