This is one of a series of 6 of these books. I believe it is a condensed version of a book edited by Fraser called "The Lives of the Kings and Queens of England". That was published in hardback (coffee table sized) in 1998. It would seem that in the six volumes of this set, the text is pretty much the same as the original book, but there are some pictures in the original book which are not in the six volume condensation. But if you want something that is economical for space and still gives you a nice overview of different periods of English history as well as wonderful photos of people, places, and documents, then you will enjoy this soft-cover set very much.

It's not great history but it's short and readable and has nice pictures. I read a lot of history but I've always had trouble sorting out all those Henries and Edwards in between William the Conqueror and Henry VIII and this was a great help. It goes from William the Conqueror up to 1400, which is when Henry IV bumped off Richard II. It's only 117 pages, some of which are illustrations so you just get the basic stories of the kings and queens. There's a little about Wales and Scotland but, even allowing for its brevity, Ireland is short-changed. It reminded me at times of Sellar and Yates's "1066 and All That" which parodies potted histories and snap judgments and I don't know what professional historians think of its accuracy, but it does the job it sets out to do.
