Product Information

Great Britain, usually just called Britain, has a rich and varied history extending over 5000 years. Like all nations its history has been divided into recognisable periods. The full name of the country is the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland as it comprises four distinctive countries England, Scotland, Wales and the six counties of Northern Ireland.  Few people learning English or who are interested in Great Britain realise how much of what they see today is a result of that history. To understand Britain and its people better it is essential to have at least a general knowledge of the country’s history which is the purpose of this book. Being a dual language book it is also designed to increase your knowledge of the English language. To have some knowledge of British history will give you a much better insight into all you see and hear about Great Britain. History is a mixture of events and people, it is not just about kings and queens, it is about ordinary people and how events influenced them, and very often how they influenced events. It must always be remembered that Great Britain, is a union of different peoples that despite much intermingling and intermarriage still remain distinct. They accept common values derived from many centuries of a common history and from sharing the limited space on these small islands. These peoples form the nation as it is today.
