5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent Primary Source collection! May 10, 2000
This volume, and volume II, make an excellent compainion piece for a servey look at British history. The chapters are arrainged to give a good over view of comtemporary ideas and issues and the excerps of documents are an excellent choise. I have used both volumes in survey courses of British history in college. One extra benefit is a chapter dedicated to the Irish question giving a wide variety of views. Many of the picks Prof. Arnstein has made are excellent choices as they are definatly not mainstream documents, yet are historicaly well known or give interesting views that are often overlooked.

3.0 out of 5 stars History Book September 5, 2010
By lpham
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I had to buy this for my history class. It was not as bad as I thought it was going to be. Articles are short and to the point, so it's useful for my british history class.

2.0 out of 5 stars Missing Pages? November 22, 2012
I ordered this book for My English history class, and I was happy at first. I really like the stuff in this book that we had to read for class, and it gave me a new found appreciation for English history. Then when I got to page 274, the next page was 307! The pages weren't ripped out or anything, they are just not there... I had to write an essay on the passages in these missing pages too. Now I don't know if I will be able to finish my paper on time and I'm very upset. This isn't amazon's fault or anything, and I do like what I have read from the book, but these missing pages are making me rethink about ordering part two of the book without seeing it in person first.
