This major publication is a book of great importance, and never more so than at the present time, when history is the subject of so much controversy and debate. Sir Roy Strong tells the story of Britain as cintinuous NARRATIVE, in chapters which give life, meaning and point to every period with which they deal, from the earliest recorded Celtic times to the era of Margaret Thatcher. The monarchy, Parliament, the law, the Church, all the great institutions whose fortunes are so much part of the fabric of our history, are here seen in perspective, affecting the everyday lives of ordinary people against an ever changing social, cultural and economic background. Roy Strong, with his passionate enthusiasm, is the ideal person to tell this great story.

Review:

Our forebears had the Bible and The Pilgrim's Progress. We have Stephen Hawking and Delia Smith. This book, for British people, has that kind of status. It is an instant classic ... I have been reading it with unalloyed admiration and delight (A. N. Wilson EVENING STANDARD)

Elegantly written, beautifully illustrated and scrupulously fair ... Classic popular history (Andrew Roberts MAIL ON SUNDAY)

His narrative steams along, his judgements are sharp and generally fair ... Essential reading (Linda Colley THE TIMES)

A triumph ... The Story of Britain succeeds better than any other contemporary survey in conveying a sense of British identity (Amanda Foreman INDEPENDENT)

A must for anyone interested in history (Beryl Bainbridge SUNDAY EXPRESS Books of the Year)

A delight to read ... An admirably conceived and richly enjoyable book (Richard Davenport-Hines TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT)

A brave, lucid, lively, majestically illustrated volume (Blair Worden SPECTATOR)

Splendid ... a most enjoyable read (Michael Kerrigan SCOTSMAN)

A magnificently produced book ... that will enlighten and inform his readers about the past of the land they live in, and how we arrived at where we are today (Simon Heffer DAILY MAIL)

This is history at its best: clear, comprehensive, and told with huge aplomb and elegance of style (Antonia Fraser)

Book Description:

A fully updated, authoritative and exceptionally readable history of Britain from the Romans to the present.
