The History Today Companion to British History

£19.99

Product description

Six British historians contribute to a comprehensive dictionary which not only is a reference work for events, people and places from 43 AD, but also acknowledges that history is as much about the writing of what happened as what actually did happen. It also includes information on historical concepts and controversy. The contributors are Dr David Bates (University of Wales, College of Cardiff), John Gillingham (London School of Economics), Dr Diarmaid McCulloch (University of Bristol and University College London), Joanna Innes (Somerville College, Oxford), Dr David Englander (Open University) and Dr John Stevenson (Worcester College, Oxford).
The extensive range of entries covers political and constitutional history; economic, social, religious, cultural, military and women's history - all examined afresh with the benefits of modern-day scholarship.
The full spectrum of British history is captured in over 4,500 entries that include biographies of the people who have shaped British history - from rulers and politicians to reformers and revolutionaries, from historians and writers to artists and architects. There are entries on government, war, social movements, economic developments, religious crusades, educational legislation, factory reform, and much more.
