Sovereign of the Isles: How the British Isles Were Won by the Crown [9781913491116]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
This is the story of how the territory of the British nation was won and parts of it were lost. It was the English who by conquest, treaty and ruthless colonisation won sovereignty over what are known as the British Islands - the United Kingdom, the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands. It was England's aggressive predations which led to the formation of the uneasy union with Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, perhaps explaining the commonplace confusion between English and British . The looser federal relationship with the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands perhaps explains why they are happier with their lot.
AUTHOR: Iain Milligan was privately educated and read law at Cambridge. He practised throughout his professional life at the Bar, taking silk in 1991 and retiring recently. He is married with three children and an ever-growing number of grandchildren. He divides his time between his home in London, a farm in Scotland and a chalet in the Alps. He is passionate about trees (thousands of which he has nurtured over the years), walking (particularly in the Alps) and his books, of which he is an avid reader.
