The Anglo-Saxons by James Campbell ( Book )
22 editions published between 1981 and 1992 in English and held by 1,901 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
For 650 years-from the end of Roman rule to the Battle of Hastings-The Anglo-Saxons controlled England; in religion, culture and administration their legacy is still with us today. In this major survey three distinguished historians, James Campbell, Patrick Wormald and Eric John, have produced an exciting introduction to the field. Although the 'lost centuries' between AD 400 and 600 suffer from a scarcity of written sources, and only two writers, King Alfred and Venerable Bede, dominate our understanding of later times, the authors have created a rich and thought provoking account of the stormy era when Britain became Christian and sustained several waves of Viking invaders. A single nation, they suggest, slowly emerged from the rivalries and fluctuating fortunes of separate kingdoms like Mercia, Wessex and East Anglia. Major figures such as Offa, Alfred, Edgar and Cnut are discussed in detail, while the stunning illustrations convey the immense achievements of Anglo-Saxon art and culture. Above all, the book shatters forever the idea that the Anglo-Saxon centuries were 'simply a barbarous prelude to better things'

A world by itself : a history of the British Isles by J. C. D Clark ( Book )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"History, like the present, is always changing, and scholarship on the history of the British Isles is currently experiencing a golden age. The breakdown of modernism, the eclipse of the Marxist tradition and of the 'Whig interpretation' that sees all history as progress, combined with the trajectories of nationalism in Ireland, Scotland and Wales, have all generated unprecedented intellectual activity." "Nor has the world stood still: the collapse of communism, the issues of integration into the EU, and the advance of multiculturalism have led more and more people in the English-speaking world as a whole to sense that their collective landscape now looks profoundly different from that inhabited by theirancestors even a few decades ago"--BOOK JACKET

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
From the publisher. Starting with the invasion of Julius Caesar in the fifth century, Bede recorded the history of the English up to his own day in 731 A.D. A scholarly monk working in the north-east of England, Bede wrote the five books of his history in Latin. The Ecclesiastical History is his most famous work, and this edition provides the authoritative Colgrave translation, as well as a new translation of the Greater Chronicle, never before published in English. His Letter to Egbert gives his final reflections on the English Church just before his death. This is the only edition to include all three texts, and they are illuminated further by a detailed introduction and explanatory notes
