1 review about A PEOPLE'S HISTORY OF BRITAIN

Perfect Overview of British History

This is an excellent, concise history on Britiah History. I use it as a reference book to review the salient historical moments that I read about in historical novels. The book provides enough information to be very formative without going into extreme details - which be quite impossible to do in a single volume anyway. The author is the daughter of Lady Antonia Fraser, who books have always provided me with much pleasure. Rebecca Fraser also seems to have the same literary gift of presenting history in a very readable, far from boring,manner!

This is an excellent book and I highly recommend it to any Anglophile who has a yen to know more - or has the need to put a particular point in time in context without the larger history of the Country
