A History Of Britain

By Schama, Simon




Simon Schama explores the forces that tore Britain apart during two centuries of dynamic change - transforming outlooks, allegiances and boundaries. From the beginning of July 1637, battles raged on for 200 years - both at home and abroad, on sea and on land, up and down the length of burgeoning Britain, across Europe, America and India. Most would be wars of faith - waged on wide-ranging grounds of political or religious conviction. But as wars of religious passions gave way to campaigns for profit, the British people did come together in the imperial enterprise of 'Britannia Incorporated'. The British Wars is a story of revolution and reaction, inspiration and disenchantment, of progress and catastrophe, and Schama's evocative narrative brings it vividly to life.

Schama, Simon.

London: B.B.C. , 2002. 4 VOLUMES BY SCHAMA - SUMMARY: V1 - History clings tight but it also kicks loose,' writes Simon Schama at the outset of At the Edge of the World?, the first book in his three-volume journey into Britain's past. And change - sometimes gentle and subtle, sometimes shocking and violent - is the dynamic of Schama's unapologetically personal and grippingly written history. 416 p. : ill. (some col.), maps, ports. ; 25 cm. V2 - To understand what Britain has become it is necessary to know what it has been. The second volume in this history takes the story of Britain from the Civil War to the Enlightenment. Each chapter focuses on a major theme. 544 p. : ill. (some col.), col. maps, ports. (some col.) ; 26 cm. V3 - Schama completes his three-volume history of Britain to accompany the BBC TV series. This period, 1770-2000, covers a variety of themes and key British characters. First, the "Romantic generation" turned Nature into a revolutionary force, followed by the creative Victorians seeking a better world. ADDITIONAL SCHAMA VOLUME: Published by the Bodley Head in 2008, n November 2008 the United States of America will elect a new president. But the imminent collapse of 20 years of Republican conservatism means the country is already conducting an intense self-examination about the trajectory of its history. This book provides a timely & masterful history of this, the world's most controversial superpower. 392 p., [16] p. of plates : ill. (some col.), ports. (some col.) ; 25 cm. ALL Volumes are Very good in similar Jackets or better. . Hard Cover. Very Good/Very Good. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
