VI.20.01.07. Read Stuart Britain: A Very Short Introduction

Date Accomplished: 28 Jan. 2012

VSI Stuart Britain

I found this VSI title for British History a little hard to get into and enjoy.  The break down of the chapters was done thematically, rather than chronologically, which can work and is probably best for this time period which saw so much change in different areas of English life.  However, I find I can follow things easier if done chronologically (call it the historian in me).  There was plenty of information that was interesting in here, but the presentation just didn’t grip my attention as most other books do.  Perhaps I’ve been distracted lately.  That is always a possibility.
