Over 4,500 entries

First published in 1997, under the editorship of the late John Cannon and in consultation with over 100 distinguished contributors, this Companion describes and analyses the people and events that have shaped and defined life in Britain over more than 2,000 years of political, social, and cultural change.

It provides a wealth of fact and insight on all aspects of the subject and from a variety of perspectives, including social, political, military, cultural, economic, scientific, and feminist. As well as the usual monarchs, battles, and political events, there are dozens of entries on the wider aspects of British history over the centuries. New entries on topics such as alternative vote, the financial crisis, Olympics in Britain, and the Scottish Independence Referendum ensure that the Companion remains relevant and current. Useful appendices include maps and genealogies, as well as a subject index.

Book.  4674 pages.  1060926 words.  Illustrated.
