Christopher HIBBERT, The Story of England
Jeremy BLACK. A History of the British Isles. Basingstoke: Palgrave, 2003
I thoroughly recommend Simon Schama's TV series A History of Britain, available as DVDs and in book form (three substantial volumes). See extracts from the BBC web site.
Also very much worth watching: Alistair Cook's America. Only recently released as BBC DVDs.
