England by Alan Allport, George Wingfield


England by Alan Allport, George Wingfield

Since Alfred the Great united England in the 9th century CE, this northwestern European country has played a prominent role in world affairs. From its early days as the world's leading naval power - which enabled it to spread its influence over an area larger than one-fourth of the world's surface - to the period when it served as the center of the Industrial Revolution, England has long been one of the world's most influential countries. Newly updated and featuring striking full-color photographs, maps, and other accessible study features, England is a detailed exploration of the people, culture, history, geography, environment, economy, and government of this enduring nation.


New arrivals to the expanding Modern World Nations series should not be missed...assure readers plenty of material suitable for in-depth reports, yet a lively enough style to lend to browsing. All are lasting, ongoing recommendations for librarians seeking to build long-term, quality collections.

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

Jessica Cobbin – age 7

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

It’s really exciting to read and review new books, thrilling to see my reviews online and I love finding the final published copies on sale.

It’s so easy to find the right book for your child. Such an easy-to-use, yet in-depth website. 100% reliable.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
