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.

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
