Nhan đề: The Oxford companion to British history / edited by John Cannon Số phân loại : 941.003 J427; Đặc điểm vật lý: xii, 1044 tr. : maps ; 26 cm
*Tóm tắt : Readers can explore this rich 2000-year history with insightful and meticulous descriptions of every important person, place, date, and movement in this fabled country, including the political legacies of the Magna Carta and the Gunpowder Plot, the legendary reigns of such monarchs as Henry VIII and Queen Victoria, the social movements of the Luddites and the Parlimentarians, cultural and artistic phenomena like Romanticism and neo-classical architecture, and the scientific achievements of Newton and Darwin. Here the etymology of the cardigan sweater (named after Crimean War hero James Brudenell, 7th Earl of Cardigan) and the biography of Mary Wollstonecraft, author of Vindication of the Rights of Women (1792), get equal billing with such familiar figures as William Shakespeare, Oliver Cromwell, and Elizabeth .

*Tóm tắt : This is the story of Boudicca, Alfred, Henry VIII and many other kings and queens, some great, some not so great. Each of them changed the history of Britain. But to become queen in 1558, like Elizabeth I, was very different from becoming queen in 1953, like Elizabeth II. They have the same name, but the job is very different. This book tells us just how it has changed .
