Does anybody know any really interesting, fairly short but well regarded History books, on these areas:

- 'Women, Gender and the Nation - Britain (1800s)'

- 'The rise and fall of Rome'

- 'French cultural history - 1800s/1900s'

Thanksamundo.

Can't go wrong with 'The Twelve Caesar's' by Suetonius. A good biography of Julias Caesar and the first 11 roman emperors.

You need to be more specific. There are millions of history books. What specifically do you want from this? General reading? Specific areas? Those are very large time periods.
