Synopsis

Oxford History of Britain and Ireland by Mike Corbishley, John Gillingham, Rosemary Kelly, Ian Dawson

History is about people, and this outstanding book explores the everyday lives of people of all kinds across the centuries: both the ordinary people, who are the lifeblood of a nation, and the extraordinary rulers, reformers, rebels, thinkers, scientists and artists who have been the pioneers of change. In compelling narrative, this book charts the great moments of social change, of discovery and invention, from the earliest settlers to the present day. A revised final chapter brings the story right up to date.

The Guardian an asset to all those with history homework but also a beautifully produced reference book for the whole family The Scotsman The scope of this book is as comprehensive as its title suggests, with the histories of Scotland, Wales and Ireland skilfully interwoven... a handsome, readable book which deserves a glowing recommendation.
