History of Japan by Kenneth G. Henshall History of Japan, Hardback (April 2012)

In a rare combination of comprehensive coverage and sustained critical focus, this book examines Japan's progress through its entire history to its current status as an economic, technological, and cultural superpower. A key factor is a pragmatic determination to succeed. Little-known facts are also brought to light, and the latest findings used.

Folly and Fortune in Early British History by Kenneth G. Henshall Folly and Fortune in Early British History, Hardback (February 2008)

Focusing on pivotal points in Early British History, this book examines the role of folly and fortune in major events in Britain from Caesar's expeditions to the Norman Conquest. By examining the foolishness in a bygone age, Henshall draws attention to how human behaviour - with all its erraticisms -- has helped shape history.
