Summary

Summary

This is a provocative and panoramic survey of 2,000 years of English history. Johnson tells the story of how a small nation, living in a geographical backwater, developed unique economic and political institutions, expanded its territory, and saddled upon it the frame of a modern industrial society.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Beautifully constructed…An idiosyncratic viewpoint has enabled Mr. Johnson to extract a great deal of new information to add to the conventional account of English, or British, history.” Times Literary Supplement
“He is abreast of modern scholarship, and a reader with some command of English history will find Johnson’s iconoclasm stimulating and challenging. His coverage of the last 200 years deserves to be labeled brilliant historical journalism.” Library Journal
“This is a John Bull of a book, the sort of book that Cobbett might have written…Splendid stuff.” Observer
“An excellent book that will stir up a great many people, and so it should. New Statesman
