A Later Printing. Illustrated with colour photographs. From the cover: “Change — sometimes gentle and subtle, sometimes shocking and violent — is the dynamic of Schama’s unapologetically personal and grippingly written history, especially the changes that wash over custom and habit, transforming our loyalties. At the heart of his history lie questions of compelling importance for Britain’s future as well as its past: What makes or breaks a nation? To whom do we give our allegiance and why? And where do the boundaries of our community lie — in our hearth and home, our village or city, tribe or faith? What is Britain — one country or many, one culture or several? Has British history unfolded ‘at the edge of the world’ or right at the heart of it?
