Synopses & Reviews
England A Concise History is a superbly illustrated volume which presents the history of England in a form short enough to be grasped--and seen--as a whole. The author emphasizes the achievements and constructive features of English history--above all, the evolution of democratic institutions and the creation of a social order strengthened by extensions of liberty, tolerance and freedom of speech.
This brief, overall look at English history links the historical periods through the dominant theme of the conflict between order and liberty.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 225-227).
