Covering the history of Britain from Roman times to the post-devolution era, this book is the essential companion for students and teachers of British history. Also covered is the history of Britain's overseas territories under British rule, and the histories of Scotland, Wales and Ireland.
Succint and unpedantic, yet fully authoritative, the dictionary covers all aspects of British history: including battles such as Hastings, Pinkie and Marston Moor; political and social groups such as Whigs, Tories, Whiteboys, and Luddites; legislation such as the Corn Laws and the Reform Acts; significant events from the Synod of Whitby to the Good Friday Agreement; biographies of men and women from Boudicaa and Alfred to Gladstone and Tony Blair.
