A compact yet comprehensive introduction to British history. This revised and completely up-to-date text reflects the authors' belief that a concise and accessible survey best serves both the student and instructor. With extensive new material on Tudor, Elizabethan, and Stuart England, as well as the Age of Empire and Britain in the late twentieth century, revisions throughout reflect the latest scholarship, giving more attention to women and social history and presenting students with today's salient themes and prevailing issues. Featuring extensive suggestions for further reading following each chapter and expanded coverage that brings the reader all the way up to 1999, The English Heritage is available in two separate volumes, making this beautiful illustrated work convenient for use in one or two semester courses.
