Jeremy Black, "A New History of England" (History Press, 2020)

New Books in History

'Remember that you are an Englishman, and have consequently won first prize in the lottery of life.' Cecil Rhodes's characteristically nineteenth-century confidence rings rather hollow as England enters the twenty-first century in somewhat reduced circumstances. Jeremy Black steers his way through the labyrinthine complexities of historical narrative with elegance and clarity, providing a lively analysis of major events and personalities and important underlying themes. He deals with the highly topical issue of England's position and relationship with Europe. A New History of England (History Press, 2020) will prove a fascinating and informative guide for anyone interested in history and heritage. Charles Coutinho Ph. D. of the Royal Historical Society, received his doctorate from New York University. His area of specialization is 19th and 20th-century European, American diplomatic and political history. He has written for Chatham House’s International Affairs, the Institute of Historical Research's Reviews in History and the University of Rouen's online periodical Cercles.
