Scholarly but dull and dry. Even when I've used it as a reference for point topics, I've never found it to be of great help or insight. I know it flies in the face of many who are far more versed in history than I, but it's one of my least favorite history books. ( )

As with all the Oxford books this one is a keen resource to have on your shelf if you love British history. ( )
