The best history of England for the ordinary readerChristopher Hill

Nobody since has written a single-volume history of the country to compare with itEric Hobsbawm

This classic work lays out the main outlines and most important turning points of British history – from the point of view of the ordinary people – in an exceptionally clear and jargon–free style. From the building of Stonehenge to the horrors of the Battle of the Somme, A.L. Morton provides an overview of historical development in Britain that both grips the reader and interprets such profound Changes as the break-up of feudalism, the civil war of the seventeenth century and the industrial revolution.  Fascinating for both the general reader and the historian alike, A People’s History of England – which has been continuously in print for more than fifty years – is the indispensable work on the subject.

A.L. Morton was born in Suffolk in 1903; he studies at Cambridge and later taught at A.S. Neill’s Summerhill. His numerous books include The World of the Ranters, The English Utopia and a study of William Blake, The Everlasting Gospel. He died in 1987.
