In his concise, but comprehensive single volume, and with over 100 illustrations, Simon Jenkins covers all the key individuals and events in English history and identifies recurring themes such as relations with France and the role of Parliament. From the fifth century 'Saxon Dawn' to the recent coalition government, he provides - 'as simply as possible' - a lucid narrative of how the England we know today came to be.
