This epic three-volume history explores life's grand themes through Britain's rich and colourful history. It looks at important concepts like the cyclical nature of power and analyses fascinating topics, for example the consequences of a civil war or what happens when a third of the population dies. It opens with the shaping of a nation and closes at the dawn of the 20th Century by asking what we can learn from our past.

Volume I, At the Edge of the World, covers the years 350-1603 whilst Volume 2, The British Wars, covers 1603-1776 and Volume 3, 1776 to 2000.

Simon Schama's sweeping history of Britain breathes life into our past centuries, vividly depicting exactly what life was like for our ancestors and how their experiences have shaped modern British culture and identity.

This boxed set contains abridged readings by Timothy West of all three volumes.
