In 1957, The Conference on British Studies sponsored a series of studies by distinguished scholars on recent writings in British history. Subsequently published in various professional journals, and now gathered in a single volume for the convenience of students, teachers, and librarians, each of the fourteen articles that comprise the book surveys not only what has been written on a particular aspect of British history, but also indicates what has not been written, what needs to be done, and what questions should be answered. In addition to offering specific bibliographical information, the articles point out significant trends in historical writing.
