I was particulary impress with the condition of the book and the rapid shipping.
In my view, the revolution is not about the American Revolution, but rather in the manner of government of Great Britton. The power of the Crown is in descent, while the power of Parliment is rapidly assending. Unfortunately, it is a forerunner to the problems we have today with the government - too many politicians who want to be in charge, particularly of things they are not qualified to run. This volume covers the beginnings of the 2 party system, and the constant back-biting between them, to the detriment of the people and the strength of the country.
Anyone interested in how things came to be in this country needs to read how it was in the old country, and they will certainly see the parallels.
In my opinion, the first volume is the most appealing, because it covers a period of history in which I'm most interested. Later volumes tend to be more limited in their subjects.
events and this adds to the readability of the work.
The pre-Roman period is not really covered and not much details of every day life but still gives a good view from the first century to the fifteenth. There are some history events that assumes more knowledge of Great Britain than maw Americans may have.
All in all I would highly recommend this book.
French, Normans, the Romans and the Northmen. Most informative and entertaining!!! Highly recommend it to anyone with a historic penchant; especially of the British or Cheltic.
