Description
(A New York Times Book Review Notable Book of 2016 and named a Book of the Year by London's Times Literary Supplement, Daily Telegraph, Spectator, and Economist) The co-author of That Sweet Enemy: The French and the British from the Sun King to the Present, which he wrote with his wife Isabelle Tombs, Robert Tombs here gives us a startlingly fresh, uniquely inclusive account of the English, who as a people have a claim to being the oldest nation in the world. Named a Book of the Year by London's Times Literary Supplement, Daily Telegraph, and Economist, the book draws out important threads running through the 2,000-year story, including participatory government, language, law, religion, the land and the sea, and England's ever-changing relations with other peoples, as well as the ways the English have understood their own history, have argued about it, forgotten it, and yet been shaped by it.

"Tombs has done nothing less than narrate with rare freshness and confidence 2,000 years of English history.... Although he is a historian of the grand sweep, his book is full of arresting details, quirky sidelights, telling quotes and delightful laconic humour.... No history published this year has been of such resounding importance to contemporary debates. Tombs, who is both fearless and non-partisan, deserves to be rewarded with a life peerage for this book. There can be no steadier, calmer and more informed adviser during the constitutional crises looming in the next two or three years."Observer
