Had this for over a year and have consulted it frequently for books by Cornwell, Mantel, O'Brian, etc. Positives - Haven't found a topic where it failed to add to my knowledge or help with a question. Beautiful graphic material. Not so positives - Heavy, bulky, small type, and never quite as in depth as would allow "one-stop shopping. View 1 comment. Oct 24, Allison Reimers rated it liked it. I just finished using this book for homeschool.
From the beginning through the Victorian Period I would give this book four to five stars. Whoever wrote it is not very proud of British colonialism and not much of a fan of Winston Churchill. That I could handle but they left venom on the page when they got to Margaret Thatcher. I prefer my history books to present the facts an I just finished using this book for homeschool. I prefer my history books to present the facts and be a little less biased.
I had to do some personal editing with my son when I got to the end of this book and I didn't appreciate it. Oct 28, Becki rated it it was amazing Shelves: non-fiction , historical.
Gorgeous book. Well done. Not dull. Sep 22, Kirsty rated it really liked it Shelves: review-books. Loved it. Dec 16, Douglas rated it it was amazing Shelves: history-british , dk-reference , 5-star-best-books-read. I just love DK visual guides. I have about 20 or so and pretty much will buy anything they publish in this format.
Some of them are more reference type of books to pick and choose what parts to read or skim through, while others just pull you in and you really want to read every page and look at every picture. I've always been fascinated with English history and this book is a great summary of almost every important event over the past years plus. There is not a lot of analysis - but this i I just love DK visual guides. There is not a lot of analysis - but this isn't the format for that type of information.
It basically reads as a history timeline focusing on important events, people, items, discoveries, and places to tell the remarkable and complex history of the British isles. I'll be reading a few books over the next couple of years to get the analysis that is so important as well. I know when I'm reading through those books I'll go back to refresh and contextualize some of that information with this book.
Thorough, visually beautiful, and just an enormous amount of information makes this book a great read for someone interested in British history. Nov 14, Sunmin rated it liked it. Informative, but certainly very wordy.
Dec 20, Jared Anderson rated it really liked it. This book did a fantastic job at thoroughly informing the reader of the various facets of Britain and Ireland. It did so wonderfully through visual images and interesting commentary. It splits it up into different eras. While parts were a little dense and less interesting to me personally, it was still very diverse in what it covered. I'd suggest this book to any Anglophile. My kind of history book -- one with lots of pictures Prettily laid out.
Pity it was essentially a history of England which occasionally remembered to include Scotland, Wales, and Ireland. Didn't really seem to put any effort into anything that wasn't English-related as well, as this book made some base errors with regards to some Scottish history.
I can only imagine it was as careless with Welsh and Irish history - the very little parts which were included.
Not reliable, and definitely would not recommend Prettily laid out. Not reliable, and definitely would not recommend Dec 09, Jason Walker rated it really liked it. Regardless of what people think in the age of Google and Yahoo! Here in a single volume is a unique timeline of the people, places and things that make up the history of the islands. The art work is astounding and the anecdotal pieces support the narrative telling a story over almost 3, years. This is, as my Scottish friends would say, a "brilliant" book.
They may not like Regardless of what people think in the age of Google and Yahoo! They may not like the first part of the book however. Jun 27, Eric rated it really liked it Shelves: history. Excellent primer for our anniversary trip to England and Wales. Learned enough to feel confident about what we were seeing over there, though probably not enough to make me not sound like an idiot whenever I tried talking to Brits about history.
May 16, Dominic Couture rated it it was amazing Shelves: favorites. I love this book. There are so many vivid, beautiful images in it. Apart from Cambridge University Press and Jessica Kingsley Publisher, DK is my third favourite publishing house because they make up such beautiful books! I received this book as a gift, and have always enjoyed it! This book is probably my favorite reference book.
There was so much information and I love when these kinds of books have pictures. I liked the topics discussed, it was very informative. Apr 07, Eunice rated it it was amazing Shelves: own-but-yet-to-read. Have this on hand whenever you are reading any Anglo-centric Historical Fiction novel.
I wish I'd bought this ten years ago.

Exploring the neglected history of Britain's largest migrant population, this is a major new study of the Irish in Britain after The Irish in Post-War Britain reconstructs, with both empathy and imagination, the histories of the lost generation who left independent Ireland in huge numbers to settle in Britain from the s until the s. Drawing on a wide range of previously neglected materials, Enda Delaney illustrates the complex process of negotiation and renegotiation that was involved in adapting and adjusting to life in Britain. Less visible than other newcomers, it is widely assumed that the Irish assimilated with relative ease shortly after arrival. The Irish in Post-war Britain challenges this view, and shows that the Irish often perceived themselves to be outsiders, located on the margins of their adopted home. Many contemporaries frequently lumped the Irish together as all being essentially the same, but Delaney argues that the experiences of Britain's Irish population after the Second World War were much more diverse than previously assumed, and shaped by social class, geography, and gender, as well as nationality.

- Она подошла вплотную к окну. Бринкерхофф почувствовал, как его тело покрывается холодным. Мидж продолжала читать. Мгновение спустя она удовлетворенно вскрикнула: - Я так и знала.
Наконец-то. Он не знал, каким образом она поняла, что ему нужно кольцо, но был слишком уставшим, чтобы терзаться этим вопросом. Его тело расслабилось, он представил себе, как вручает кольцо сияющему заместителю директора АНБ.
Вначале он хотел снять его, но белая оксфордская рубашка была бы ничуть ни лучше, поэтому он лишь пригнулся еще ниже. Мужчина рядом нахмурился.
Беккер понял, что с каждой минутой дело все больше запутывается. - С подружкой. Немец был не. Клушар кивнул: - Со спутницей.
Несмотря на все попытки забыть утренний разговор с Дэвидом, он никак не выходил у нее из головы. Она понимала, что говорила с ним слишком сурово, и молила Бога, чтобы в Испании у него все прошло хорошо. Мысли Сьюзан прервал громкий звук открываемой стеклянной двери.
Выполняя поручения людей из высшего эшелона власти, Бринкерхофф в глубине души знал, что он - прирожденный личный помощник: достаточно сообразительный, чтобы все правильно записать, достаточно импозантный, чтобы устраивать пресс-конференции, и достаточно ленивый, чтобы не стремиться к большему. Приторно-сладкий перезвон каминных часов возвестил об окончании еще одного дня его унылого существования. Какого черта! - подумал. - Что я делаю здесь в пять вечера в субботу. - Чед? - В дверях его кабинета возникла Мидж Милкен, эксперт внутренней безопасности Фонтейна.
Человек не выпускал его из рук. - Да хватит тебе, Эдди! - Но, посмотрев в зеркало, он убедился, что это вовсе не его закадычный дружок. Лицо в шрамах и следах оспы. Два безжизненных глаза неподвижно смотрят из-за очков в тонкой металлической оправе. Человек наклонился, и его рот оказался у самого уха двухцветного.
Затем, не сводя с него глаз, нагнулся, поднял бутылки и поставил их на стол. - Ну, доволен. Тот потерял дар речи.
Сотрудник лаборатории систем безопасности схватил ее за руку. - Мисс Флетчер. У нас вирус.
