The three volumes of A History of the Peoples of the British Islesweave together the histories of England, Ireland, Scotland, and Wales and their peoples.

The authors trace the course of social, economic, cultural and political history from prehistoric times to the present, analyzing the relationships, differences and similarities of the four areas.

Volume II focuses on the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries and its main themes are:

* the formation of the British nation-state
* the spread of English cultural influence and political power throughout the British Isles
* the industrialization of the British economy
* the formation of a class society
* the expansion of British power and influence around the world
* the emergence and maturing of Victorian society and culture.

Presenting a wealth of material on themes such as women's history, the family, religion, intellectual history, society, politics, and the arts, these volumes are an important resource for all students of the political and cultural heritage of the British Isles.
