The Makers of English History
by Norman Stone

The Makers of English History presents the lives of a number of extraordinary individuals who have captured the public imagination, whether in the arts, politics, economics or the armed forces. They include not only the accepted giants of English history like Alfred the Great, William Shakespeare or Winston Churchill, but also less expected figures like the fourteenth-century financier William de la Pole or the writer Virginia Woolf. If it is possible to talk about the `English genius', then these are surely the people who best characterise that spirit.

After a foreword by Lord Briggs, Provost of Worcester College, Oxford, Professor Norman Stone provides a thought-provoking introduction to a series of essays by fellow historians, who with their specialist knowledge have chosen the men and women they feel have contributed most to English history. Their assessments afford a comprehensive and penetrating view of the character and importance of each `maker', and also vividly evoke the times in which they lived. The many black-and-white and colour illustrations richly complement the text, making this both a valuable work of history and a fascinating biographical study.
