A POCKET VERSION OF "A PEOPLE'S HISTORY OF ENGLAND"
BY A. L MORTON

A PEOPLE'S HISTORY OF ENGLAND

 

DIVIDED INTO 17 CHAPTERS,

 A PEOPLE’S HISTORY OF ENGLAND by A.L.MORTON.

"IN SPITE OF ITS TITLE, THIS BOOK IS NOT SO MUCH A HISTORY OF ENGLAND AS AN ESSAY IN HISTORICAL INTERPRETATION.

 IT SETS OUT TO GIVE THE READER A GENERAL IDEA OF THE MAIN LINES OF THE MOVEMENT OF OUR HISTORY,AND TO DO THIS A MASS OF DETAIL HAS BEEN SACRIFICED AND EVENTS OF CONSIDERABLE IMPORTANCE HAVE BEEN OF NECESSITY OMITTED OR RECEIVED THE MOST CURSORY TREATMENT.

FURTHER, IT IS INTENDED FOR THE GENERAL READER RATHER THAN THE SPECIALIST, AND MAKES NO PRETENCE OF BEING THE RESULT OF ORIGINAL RESEARCH: IT WOULD, INDEED, BE QUITE IMPOSSIBLE FOR ANY ONE WRITER TO ATTEMPT TO COVER THE WHOLE FIELD OF ENGLISH HISTORY IN SUCH A WAY".
