Description
Beginning in 410 with the rise of the Saxons, the author divides the chapters into time frames, each focusing on important events of the period. This allows a comprehensive discussion of time periods and trends while still maintaining the brevity needed to keep the book under 400 pages. He adroitly covers English royal history from 1066 to 1714, demonstrating how the individual kings and queens fit together into one coherent story, and then moves on to the period when monarchs give way to prime ministers. The narrative ends with a meditation on the reasons for England’s remarkable success as a country and his thoughts on its future.
