About the Author

Simon Jenkins is the author of the bestselling England's Thousand Best Churches and England's Thousand Best Houses, the former editor of The Times and Evening Standard and a columnist for the Guardian. He is also chairman of the National Trust.


A lucid and handsomely illustrated narrative, from the Saxon dawn of England to the Cameron Government * The Times *
Full of stand-out facts ... Absolutely fascinating ... I've learnt an awful lot -- Richard Bacon, BBC Radio 2
Let Jenkins sweep you through England's history, painting a vivid picture of this country's green and pleasant land * City AM *
Where Jenkins excels is in his very journalistic approach ... The historical events are joined up, and work as narrative * Time Out *
Immediately accessible * Prospect *
This is traditional, kings-and-things, great-men history with all its dates and famous quotations in place ... it's jolly good ... Jenkins has a newspaper columnist's aphoristic verve ... judgements are crisp * Spectator *
Entertaining * Sunday Times *
Full of good writing and lively anecdotes ... worth perusing for pleasure and food for thought * New Statesman *
A characteristically bold, wry, fluent, combative gallop through English history -- Max Hastings
