First published in 1932, this book was written primarily for children in the middle and upper forms of public and secondary schools. Arranged chronologically, excepting the separate discussion of economic and constitutional issues, the material is broadly viewed from an international perspective, and political history is subordinated to social history. Whilst the text was written to provide a resource for the School Certificate or equivalent examinations, it does not lose sight of the narrative aspect of history and remains highly readable. Extensive quotations from contemporary sources and renowned historians are included. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in British history, historiography, or the education system.
