Product description

Complete in four volumes. Volume I is on The Birth of Britain, Volume II is on The New World, Volume III is on The Age of Revolution and Volume IV is on The Great Democracies. With numerous black and white maps throughout all volumes. A History of the English-Speaking Peoples is a four-volume history of Britain and its former colonies and possessions throughout the world, written by Winston Churchill, covering the period from Caesar's invasions of Britain (55 BC) to the beginning of the First World War (1914). It was started in 1937 and finally published 1956, delayed several times by war and work on other texts. Churchill's mother was American, and he excelled in history as a child which underpinned his firm belief in a so-called special relationship between the people of Britain with the Commonwealth of Nations united under the Crown (New Zealand, Canada, Australia, South Africa etc. ) and the people of the United States who had broken with the Crown and gone their own way. This work dealt with the resulting two divisions of the English-speaking peoples. It was a bestseller, reviewed favourably on both sides of the Atlantic.

Oxfam Bookshop Balham

Balham, or 'The Gateway to the South' as Peter Sellers once called it, is a bustling corner of south west London, situated between Clapham and Tooting. The area is well known for its comedy heritage, thanks in no small part to Sellers's sketch, as well as comedy circuit staple The Bedford Arms and famous residents Arthur Smith, Andy Zaltzman and Richard Herring. The area also hosts something of a literary heritage with DBC Pierre having written his Booker prize-winning first novel in Balham. Our bookshop is located on the busy High Road just down the road from the tube station which was bombed in October 1940, an event immortalised in Ian McEwan's Atonement.
