`Free Epub ↞ The English Rebel: One Thousand Years of Trouble-making from the Normans to the Nineties ↡ PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB free

A really interesting, if not hugely deep, study that does what the title says There s a wealth of information here and, to my mind, some running themes that are pretty applicable to what England, and Britain as a whole, has been through over the last couple of years I wouldn t mind reading an updated version with extra chapters about the last sixteen odd years I think there is plenty to say about the anti war marches and the resurgence of English nationalism s ugliness that would be interesting, if also very depressing. Very InterestingAt times it dragged a little bit but was necessary for the backstory It was very thorough but it didn t drag It didn t just focus on the famous rebellions but touched on a lot of them An entertaining and illuminating romp through the English rebellions and revolts of the last 1000 years. A fun, intelligent and readable historical overview of a millennia of English troublemaking, something it seems we re very good at Necessarily brief in places, but a recommended volume for those who are interested in the subject but don t necessarily have much historical knowledge I really like Horspool s idea of the English being troublemakers and that the true history of England is a story of rebellion And he tells this story really well The detail of some of the examples is brief but when you are drawing upon a thousand years worth that is unavoidable If you want to learn about England s rebels then this is an excellent starting point. Good premise, but really rushed through the last 3 centuries and being very detailed on the Medieval period. A good idea on a subject I m passionate about, but it just didn t grip me and was pretty disappointing in the end A little heavy going, took me ages to finish. The English Rebel, by David Horspool chronicles Britain s last millennium of rebellion and monarchical overthrows Somehow Harspool makes exciting history dull and devoid of excitement `Free Epub ↬ The English Rebel: One Thousand Years of Trouble-making from the Normans to the Nineties ☂ The English Have A Rich And Glorious History Of Making Trouble For Themselves One Hundred And Forty Years Before The French Revolution, The English Executed Their King And Instituted A Radical Revolutionary Government In , Than Years Before The United States Ratified Its Bill Of Rights, England S Barons Forced King John To Accept The Magna Carta In Over Million Strikers Brought The Nation To Its Knees From The Peasants Revolt To The Suffragettes, From Oliver Cromwell To Arthur Scargill, This Ground Breaking And Hugely Enjoyable Book Describes A Rich And Continuous Tradition Of Resistance, Rebellion And Radicalism, Of Violent And Charismatic Individuals With Axes To Grind, And Of Social Eruptions And Political Earthquakes That Have Shaped England S Whole Culture And Character
