If you are a lover of history or art, this book is going to enrage you. No knock on the author here: that it does outrage you is probably the point. Strong goes into a great deal of detail as to how the Reformation, the English Commonwealth, and sundry other disasters ensured that an enormous chunk of England's literary, architectural and religious heritage got destroyed. It makes for horrifying reading, laid out as skillfully as it is. And it is laid out skillfully, with an enormous wealth of illustration. A must-have for English history fans. ( )
