A gem – The English and their History

Awesome. A wonderfully written history of England from its birth to 2014. Written by a Professor of History from Cambridge University this 1000-page book is a highly readable and yet dense synthesis of the political, economic, social and cultural history of England.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. Robert Tombs has also provided detailed endnotes and a very useful list of Further Reading for an inquisitive reader like me. This is a book that will be difficult to surpass.
