Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This highly illuminating collection of original essays forms an ideal introduction to the most up-to-date thinking about the problems of British history and identities. How was the United Kingdom formed? How were Wales, Scotland and Ireland incorporated to a unified British polity? "Uniting the Kingdom?" is a timely examination of this history. Assembling the most distinguished historians of Britian, this landmark book explores themes and questions across the entire span of British and United Kingdom history. Traditional chronological frontiers are broken down as medievalists, early modernists and modernists sustain a dynamic dialogue around the key issues of the British state such as expansion and contraction, the nature of political tensions and conflicting historiographies. "Uniting the Kingdom?" represents a comprehensive survey of the most recent historical scholarship and will preserve its resonance for years to come.

Book News Annotation:

A consideration of British history and identity breaking traditional chronological and regional borders to debate the major issues of the British state from its medieval foundations. 19 historians investigate questions in "the Anglo-Saxon achievement," overlordship, the incorporation of Wales, Scotland, and Ireland, and modern questions of imperial multinational polity in conflict with very contemporary realities of sovereignty.
