Gr. 5^-8. Well suited to both reference and circulating collections, this handsome book will serve as a dependable guide to British and Irish history as well as a backup resource for topics such as childhood in medieval times, the history of printing, and the Industrial Revolution. The historical scope is broad, beginning when Britain and Ireland were part of the European land mass, and proceeding through prehistory to the first people in Britain, the first farmers, the Celts, the Romans, the Vikings, and, eventually, the English, the Welsh, the Scots, and the Irish. Century upon century of political and social history unfolds, ending with a look toward the twenty-first century, as the Channel Tunnel and the European Union unite Britain and Ireland with Europe once again. Fully illustrated with excellent color photographs of sites, artifacts, and period artworks, laid out on tall, broad pages, this is an exceptionally beautiful book. Better still, its clarity and organization make a vast subject seem manageable and intriguing. Carolyn Phelan
