A HISTORY OF ENGLAND Keith Feiling 1969
“The primary purpose of this book”, writes Sir Keith Feiling, “is to tell the story, so far as may be in the space of one volume, and to lay the emphasis on the period within which Britain became a great power.”
Apart from a brief prelude on England before the coming of the English and an epilogue on the years 1918-38, this one-volume history is mainly concerned with the centuries during which the power and influence of England spread throughout the World. It describes in detail the growth and development of the British dominion overseas. The book is both an outstanding work of scholarship and a narrative of absorbing interest…
Sir Keith Feiling was Chichele Professor of Modern History, University of Oxford, until his retirement in 1950. His other publications include The Second Tory Party, 1714-1832 and Warren Hastings, winner of the 1954 James Tait Black Memorial Prize.
