Uniting the Kingdom?: The Making of British History by Alexander Grant

In Uniting the Kingdom? a group of the most distinguished historians from Britain and Ireland assemble to consider the question of British identity spanning the period from the Middle Ages to the present.

This outstanding collection of essays forms an illuminating introduction to the most up-to-date thinking about the problems of British histories and identities.
