Summary

This text, which is the first volume in the best-selling History of England series, tells how a small and insignificant outpost of the Roman empire evolved into a nation that has produced and disseminated so many significant ideas and institutions. The Eighth Edition incorporates more women's history, while continuing to provide balanced political and economic coverage with social and cultural history woven throughout.
