Essex and its people have exercised a greater influence on the wider history of England-and, for that matter, Europe-than most counties, and its inhabitants are justifiably proud of this.
Here the author does not just record what happened, he evaluates why it happened, in the context of cultural, social, economic and topographical dimensions. "... provides illuminating insights into Essex history and will be enjoyed by all those interested in the county's past." Essex Journal
