A History of the British Isles, Paperback Book


A core introductory textbook that provides students with a concise overview of the full sweep of English, Irish, Scottish and Welsh history, from pre-Roman times right through to the present day.

Jeremy Black offers a balanced and absorbing account of a group of islands, their peoples, their extraordinary shared past and their remarkable impact on the rest of the world.

This is an ideal set text for dedicated modules on British History, or a supplementary text for broader modules on European History, which may be offered at all levels of an undergraduate History or European Studies degree.

In addition it is a crucial resource for students who may be studying the history of Britain for the first time as part of a taught postgraduate degree in British or European History.
