Praise for third edition: "Jeremy Black's concise history of the British Isles is extremely comprehensive and eminently readable. It possesses a helpful focus on political developments, economic history, and technological change but also pays considerable attention to social and cultural issues. It is an admirable attempt at both synthesis and explication." - Paul Deslandes, University of Vermont, USAReview of the first edition:"Do histories of Britain inevitably have to be histories of England?..This is exactly where Jeremy Black comes into his own, for he delivers the history of the archipelago which he promises...the perspective of the work is wider and fuller than that of any other recent history. Black's work is also remarkable for the sense which it conveys of the power of broad social and cultural change." - Times Educational Supplement
