Rated 0

Prose: non-fiction, British & Irish history

In this much-acclaimed book, Paul Johnson looks back on two thousand years of English history and provides a radical interpretation of a remarkable people.

Provocative and incisive, Johnson applies his journalistic skills to a shrewd analysis of the evolution of the English nation, charting the growth of the small but newly independent state, enveloped in the myths of the Dark Ages, into its modern-day status as a prominent player upon the world stage.
