Favourite Historical Books? (Fiction/Non-fiction)Watch
On the go currently I have two Tudor non fiction, two Irish history non fiction, and a fictional Tudor novel. It's a lot, but I'll get there .
What's your favourite historical books, fictional or non fictional?
I don't tend to have a favourite, but if I was forced to say, it would be Alison Weir's Elizabeth.
2. Religion and the Decline of Magic (Keith Thomas);
3. The Six Wives of Henry VIII (Antonia Fraser);
4. Witch-Craze (Lyndal Roper);
5. Bloodlands (Timothy Snyder).
Orlando Figes - A People's Tragedy
Michael Mann - The Dark Side of Democracy
Avi Shlaim - The Iron Wall
Tom Holland - Rubicon
Murray Bookchin - The Third Revolution
I'm a history postgrad student, so I could give quite a long list, but the above are a few that have had a particular impact on me.
