The English and their History by Robert Tombs

Posted on

Robert Tombs gives us the history of the English people, and of how the stories they have told about themselves have shaped them, from the prehistoric ‘dreamtime’ through to the present day.

Sir Ian Kershaw FBA, Emeritus Professor of Modern History, University of Sheffield

“England’s history was, long before the union with Scotland in 1707, deeply entwined with that of Wales, Scotland and Ireland, and Tombs’ book not only incorporates these interrelationships but is greatly enlightening about them.”
