Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0198608853, Paperback)

When was the first motorway opened? How did the British acquire Hong Kong? What was the book of sports? What prompted the Cat and Mouse Act? How long did the Hundred Years War last? Which queen was "nothing so fair as reported?"
Drawing on the highly acclaimed Oxford Companion to British History, A Dictionary of British History, published in the very popular OPR series first in 2001 and now reissued for 2003, is a handy and invaluable reference work essential for anyone with an interest in British history and in need for a compact reference source covering 2,000 years of people, events, and places, and political, economic, local, domestic, military, and social change. In more than 3,600 entries, over 100 specialist contributors describe the people and events that have shaped and defined domestic, political, social, and cultural life in Britain over the past two millennia.
