From one of our finest historians comes an outstanding exploration of the British monarchy from the retreat of the Romans up until the modern day.

This compendium volume of two earlier books is fully revised and updated. The monarchy is one of Britain's most revered institutions - but also one of its most tumultuous.

In Crown and Country, David Starkey charts its rollercoaster history from earliest times to the present; from the courtly love of the Middle Ages, through the turbulent reign of the Tudors, to the chaos of the Civil War. Starkey brings this tempestuous story up to date in this complete history, guiding us through the Abdication Crisis to the dissolution of the marriage of Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer.

He draws upon rank and romance in light of the wedding of Kate Middleton and Prince William and brings to life a cast of colourful characters and some riveting stories.

Crown and Country is both a brilliant overview of the monarchy and a vividly iconoclastic portrait of British culture, politics and nationhood.
