British Isles

British Isles

Few regions can lay claim to such regal history as the British Isles, where monarchs have reigned for centuries. We’ve got the latest books on the Tudors and famous queens of yore as well as historical narratives that detangle the convoluted relationships between England, Scotland, Ireland, Northern Ireland and Wales.  For a good, traditional travelogue, check out Paul Theroux’s Kingdom by the Sea, which recounts the prolific writer’s coastal journey around the Atlantic islands in 1982.
