Having finished my previous book late in the evening, I found this on our Kindle library from an Oxford ContEd course my OH had done. We've taken four such courses each now - art history and physics for me; philosophy, history and current affairs for him - and cannot recommend them too highly.

As for the book, it concerns events just before the period of history that I studied for A level, so had the feeling of a prequel. I learned some new things, so worth my while, and yours too if this era interests you.
