An illustrated history of eighteenth-century Britain, 1688-1793User Review - Book Verdict
Black (A History of the British Isles, St. Martin's, 1996) begins with the Glorious Revolution of 1688, which he considers a seminal point in British thought, leading to many changes during the next century. Among the areas Black deals with are the working class, country and city life, the nobility, politics, religion, business, the arts, and government. He points out continuity and change in each area, at times challenging accepted ideas. The topical arrangement makes it easy to follow each subject through the century. Making extensive use of primary source materials, with illustrations (mostly in black and white) of the people, places, and events discussed, Black sticks to the facts, a style that general readers may find boring but all readers will find informative. Recommended for most libraries.--Marilyn K. Dailey, Natrona Cty. P.L., Casper, Wy.
