A History of the English People
Publisher: Blackstone Audiobooks
Date: December 2010
Duration: 19 hours 16 minutes
This is a provocative and panoramic survey of two thousand years of English history. Johnson tells the story of how a small nation, living in a geographical backwater, developed unique economic and political institutions, expanded its territory, and saddled upon it the frame of a modern industrial society.
"Beautifully constructed...An idiosyncratic viewpoint has enabled Mr. Johnson to extract a great deal of new information to add to the conventional account of English, or British, history."-Times Literary Supplement
