9780199100354: The Young Oxford History of Britain and Ireland

A major new history for young readers, this volume brings to life the people, places and events that make up the past of Ireland and Britain. Starting with the earliest settlers on these islands, The Young Oxford History of Britain and Ireland maps the social, economic, cultural, and technological developments of the ages up until the present day. We hear the stories of ordinary people and extraordinary rulers--the reformers and rebels, scientists, thinkers, and artists--who shaped the centuries and of the discoveries and inventions that changed their everyday lives.
With over 500 stunning illustrations, including maps, family trees, paintings, photographs, and timelines, as well as double-page feature spreads on important topics such as the printing press and the steam engine, The Young Oxford History of Britain and Ireland is an engrossing read, a visual feast, a valuable reference resource, and a lasting treasure-trove of information.

Review:


"Wide in scope, [this] volume is organized in broad chronological order and serves as an excellent overall introduction to the political, economic, social, cultural, and religious history of Britain and Ireland.... Provide[s] an enormous wealth of fascinating facts."--VOYA


"Enhanced by a glorious selection of full-color photographs, paintings, maps, and documents, this volume brings history to life.... The value of this title is in pulling together so much information into one well-organized and readable volume.... If you need a single-volume history of England and Ireland, this is the one to buy."--School Library Journal


"This handsome book will serve as a dependable guide to British and Irish history as well as a backup resource for topics such as childhood in medieval times, the history of printing, and the Industrial Revolution.... This is an exceptionally beautiful book. Better still, its clarity and organization make a vast subject seem manageable and intriguing."--Booklist


"Remarkably well pitched.... A splendidly wide-ranging book from the earliest times to 1994."--School Librarian (UK)


"This is a glorious book for readers of any age. The innumerable colored illustrations...are worth every square inch they occupy."--The Daily Telegraph (UK)
