Synopsis

The Reduced History of Britain The Story of the World's Greatest Little Nation Squeezed into 100 Moments by Chas Newkey-Burden

A lot of pomp and circumstance has gone on since Julius Caesar first came, and saw and conquered, but this doughty little book heroically manages to capture the true essence of this green and pleasant land in just 100 episodes (plus a few extras for good luck). This is the story of England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales as it has never been told before: a red-white-and-blue compilation of surreal news reports, spoof correspondence and quirky cartoons. From the hooded druids of Stonehenge to the hoodied chavs of the Bluewater Shopping Centre, the nation's towering achievements and darkest hours are entertainingly recalled.
