But their history has been a spectacular one. The guiding principle of this books heretical approach is that history is not everything that happened, but what is worth remembering about the past.... Its chapters deal mainly with Memorable History in blocks of time over the centuries.

The final chapter recounts the achievements, personalities and idiocies of the royal family since the arrival of William the Conqueror in 1066. Spiced with dozens of hilarious cartoons from Punch and other publications, English History is a welcome and amusing tour of a land that has always fascinated Anglophiles and Anglophobes alike.
