Much that is stimulatingly contentious but all is excellent. This work not merely reinterprets British history in terms of the past interactions between four nations, but could have a real impact on how we think of the present crises of British identity, Britain and Europe and relations between England, Ireland and Scotland.' - Professor Bernard Crick;This pioneering book seeks to transcend the limitations of separate English, Irish, Scottish and Welsh histories by taking the archipelago made up of the islands of Britain and Ireland as a single unit of study. This is a story of the creation of a British state system if not a British state, with the incorporation of Wales into the English state, the creation of a kingdom of Ireland dependent on the English Crown and of a confederation of the Scottish and English crowns; and it is the story of how the various peoples of the archipelago interacted and became different peoples as a result of that interaction.
