The Thames

by Jonathan Schneer

  • HISTORY
  • 2005
  • HARD COVER
  • 384 PAGES

Schneer places the Thames at the center of the great events of British history in this engaging, anecdotal and evocative history. Beginning in prehistoric times, and covering everything from the Magna Carta, to Turner's paintings, and the German Blitz, Schneer emphasizes how the British people have "made" the Thames. Schneer has taught at Yale and the Georgia Institute of Technology.  (GBR570, $35.00)
