Publisher Description

A unique and accessible history of England from one of the country’s preeminent thinkers

Published in 1917, A Short History of England is a “popular book of history” told through the layman’s eyes. G. K. Chesterton takes the reader on brisk, casual strolls through the annals of Anglo-Saxon history by discussing key topics and periods, including “The Defeat of the Barbarians,” “The Problem of the Plantagenets,” and “Nationality and the French Wars,” in clear and insightful prose.
 
A fascinating collection of short pieces that bring the past to stimulating life, A Short History of England is a testament to the unique qualities that, according to George Bernard Shaw, made Chesterton “at once the most concise and the fullest historian this distressful country has yet found.”
