This book is a new edition of the highly acclaimed history. It is very accessible. It deals with the highly topical issue of England's position and relationship with Europe. 'Remember that you are an Englishman, and have consequently won first prize in the lottery of life.' Cecil Rhodes' characteristically nineteenth-century confidence rings rather hollow as England enters the twenty-first century in somewhat reduced circumstances. In his "New History of England", leading historian Jeremy Black takes a cool and dispassionate look at the vicissitudes of over two millennia of English history. Professor Black steers his way through the labyrinthine complexities of historical narrative with elegance and clarity, providing a lively analysis of major events and personalities and important underlying themes. "A New History of England" will prove a fascinating and informative guide for anyone interested in history and heritage.
