Listing Detail Tabs

This compact encyclopedia of British history (from Roman times onwards) manages to be both concise and informative. A good number of the references are biographical, and many others cover those half-familiar terms which we only half understand.
For example: Triennial Act; Dissenting; National Debt; Labour Representation Committee; Temperance; Evangelical; Parliamentary Privilege; Co-operative Movement; Singapore; Suez Canal.

Some may say that you can find all this on the internet anyway nowadays. That's partly true - but I doubt you can find it in such a pithy and yet such a scholarly fashion.

All cross-referenced entries are marked in small capitals, making this in addition a fascinating browsing book in which you can get lost for hours - and emerge more than a little wiser.

Six British historians contributed to the companion, which not only is a reference work for events, people and places from 43 AD, but also acknowledges that history is as much about the writing of what happened as what actually did happen. It also includes information on historical concepts and controversy. The contributors are Dr David Bates (University of Wales, College of Cardiff), John Gillingham (London School of Economics), Dr Diarmaid McCulloch (University of Bristol and University College London), Joanna Innes (Somerville College, Oxford), Dr David Englander (Open University) and Dr John Stevenson (Worcester College, Oxford).
