This classic work lays out the main outlines and most important turning points of British history from the point of view of the ordinary people in an exceptionally clear and jargon-free style. From the building of Stonehenge to the horrors of the Battle of the Somme, A. L. Morton provides an overview of historical development in Britain that both grips the reader and interprets such profound changes as the break-up of feudalism, the civil war of the seventeenth century and the industrial revolution. Fascinating for both the general reader and the historian alike, A People's History of England – which has been continuously in print for more than fifty years – is the indispensable work on the subject.
