Description
G. K. Chesterton has committed a great sin; he has written a didactic poem, a work of art, and has called it history. It is no easy thing to give a list of all the complex sanctities that he has violated by this one act; as a mere incident in the accomplishment of his main purpose he has arrayed against himself anti-Catholics, materialists, aristocrats, plutocrats, and the whole tribe of scientific historians. But it is true of Chesterton's "History of England," as it is true of any work of art, that the sanctities which it violates are not so important as the vision which inspires it. --The Dial, 1918

display_descriptionA unique and accessible history of England from one of the country's preeminent thinkers. Published in 1917, A Short History of England is a "popular book of history" told through the layman's eyes. G. K. Chesterton takes the reader on brisk, casual strolls through the annals of Anglo-Saxon history by discussing key topics and periods, including "The Defeat of the Barbarians," "The Problem of the Plantagenets," and "Nationality and the French Wars," in clear and insightful prose. A fascinating collection of short pieces that bring the past to stimulating life, A Short History of England is a testament to the unique qualities that, according to George Bernard Shaw, made Chesterton "at once the most concise and the fullest historian this distressful country has yet found."
