|Summary, etc.:|| In this, the first book in his epic 3-volume history, Schama brings Britain's past to dramatic life. "Schama's perspective moves from the early tribes and invasions of the British isles to the Norman conquest; through the religious wars and turbulence of the Middle ages to the sovereignties of Henry II, Richard I and King John; through the outbreak of the Black Death, which destroyed nearly half of Europe's population; through the reign of Edward I and the growth of national identity in Scotland and Wales; to the turbulent religious and dynastic conflicts of the Tudor Age, culminating in the glorious reign of Elizabeth I." -- Book jacket.
A comprehensive history of Britain chronicles battles waged by the British, both at home and abroad, details its role as a global power, and examines key events and personalities that shaped more than two centuries of history.
