Details

The Story of Britain is a significant book published at a significant moment, for there can rarely have been a time when public concern about history and the teaching of history has created so much controversy and debate. Sir Roy Strong, author, broadcaster, former Director of the National Portrait Gallery and the Victoria and Albert Museum, tells the story of Britain from the very earliest recorded Celtic times to the era of Margaret Thatcher. Featuring illustrated double-page spreads arranged by subject, he tells the story as a continuous narrative in chapters which give meaning and purpose to the periods they consider. It is a tremendous story, and Roy Strong, with his passion, enthusiasm and wide-ranging knowledge, is the ideal person to tell it.
