Inhaltsangabe: In this illustrated history the author shows that the history of England forms only part of a wider study - a "history of four nations". It argues that to ignore this truly British dimension can distort our view of the past and hinder our understanding of the present.
Rezension: 'Kearney's book should be widely used to educate those who think they know about British history when in fact they know only English history.' Christopher Hill, The New York Review of Books '... a book into which much labour and thought, much knowledge and wisdom has been packed, which contains in consequence much that is unexpected and fascinating'. Colin Welch, The Spectator ' ... a perceptive, challenging and, at times, provocative book ... Kearney not only offers a balanced outline instead of the usual English history in disguise, but ambitiously surveys 2000 years of British history in 250 pages.' Steven Ellis, History Today

Anbieterinformationen: We have been selling academic and scholarly books in Cambridge since 1996. Today we occupy an old warehouse on Coldhams Road, adjacent to the railway tracks leading to Ely, not too far from the airport. The site is called Restwell House. We are an internet bookshop, but visitors are very welcome. Some drop off a few boxes of unwanted books, some pick up a book to save on the postage, some just drop by to get to know us, or want to take advantage of the many bargains on our wooden shelves bookshop, which is distinct from the internet stock offered on the web. Our mission has always been to find new homes for the books we are looking after. If we cannot sell them online, we offer them at very low prices to our visitors. We try to give you a serious and dedicated service which is focussed on the individuality of each single book: its condition, its origin, sometimes even its smell. You come to us for real books, not just instances of ISBNs.
