In this much-acclaimed work, Tombs narrates the story of England’s development from ‘an idea’ to a kingdom, a country, a people and a culture, and he makes collective memory an inherent part of the story. The roles of memory creators and carriers such as language, literature, law, religious and political institutions, and historical writing are emphasized; and Tombs focuses on four ‘memory themes’: the aftermath of the Norman Conquest; the Civil War; empire; and the recent sense of the nation in decline. American-cut pages and felt-tip mark on lower trimmed edge and off-mint.
