The Story of BritainBook - 1996
This major publication is a book of great importance, and never more so than at the present time, when history is the subject of so much controversy and debate. Sir Roy Strong tells the story of Britain as cintinuous NARRATIVE, in chapters which give life, meaning and point to every period with which they deal, from the earliest recorded Celtic times to the era of Margaret Thatcher. The monarchy, Parliament, the law, the Church, all the great institutions whose fortunes are so much part of the fabric of our history, are here seen in perspective, affecting the everyday lives of ordinary people against an ever changing social, cultural and economic background. Roy Strong, with his passionate enthusiasm, is the ideal person to tell this great story.
