Praise for "Foundation"

"Ackroyd has drawn a large, loyal readership in his native land. Over some 50 books, he has seldom strayed far from the subject of the past and the traces it has left in the present. And the history that interests him most is the kind touching on national memory and a sense of place, 'longing and belonging, ' in his memorable phrase."

Peter Ackroyd certainly had the gift of making history come alive. this volume covers English history from the earliest times up until the advent of the house of Tudor. The mix of "traditional" with cultural history makes for fascinating reading.
Buy, read and enjoy!

Behandelt neben den historischen Fakten auch viele kulturhistorische Themen. Gehobenes Englisch ohne zu akademisch zu sein, ab Oberstufe aufwärts sollte es gehen. Klare Kaufempfehlung.

Und als e-book zudem echt ein Schnäppchen. Peter Ackroyd schreibt verlässlich und kenntnisreich über den Stand der Dinge der modernen Geschichtsschreibung. Das heißt zum Beispiel - Richard-Fans müssen sich darauf einstellen - dass er natürlich die Alternativ-Theorien zum Tod der Prinzen im Tower am Ende des Buches abwägt, sich aber dann argumentativ doch den traditionellen Quellen anschließt, die übereinstimmend den König als Auftraggeber des Mordes sehen.
Vom Stil her eher stark in Richtung Sachbuch orientiert, manchmal vielleicht etwas zuviel trockene Fakten und rhetorische Fragen, welche die Analyse eine Geschichtswissenschaftlers spiegeln sollen, aber so sieht man immerhin, dass der Autor viel Quellenarbeit vorgeleistet hat.
Speziell zu der Zeit von King Stephen bis zum Ende Richard III würde ich (besonders für an der Epoche der Plantagenets und der Rosenkriege interessierte Leser) eher The Plantagenets: The Kings Who Made England empfehlen, da Jones Schreibe lebendiger und fließender daherkommt, faktisch nehmen sich die beiden Werke nichts.
