From widely-published author and highly-experienced teacher Juergen Kramer, A Concise History of the British Isles is a handbook on the history of the British Isles, aimed directly at students of British studies abroad. It recounts the history of England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales from prehistory to the present in just 150 pages and also provides a selection of historically significant documents as well as questions and exercises.
Historical in focus, the book has a unique approach that presents not only the story of what happened when, but looks at European and International perspectives and how events in Britain influenced and were influenced by external factors.
With chapters organized chronologically, starting with "Britons, Celts and Romans, 4000 BC-400 AD" through "Medieval Struggles" and finishing with "Twenty-first Century Perspectives," this is a must for all students of British studies.
