In conjunction with two other volumes, which are scheduled to appear later, The Continental Backgrounds of English and its Insular Development until 1154 aims at giving a comprehensive survey of what by the author is seen as the most interesting aspects of the long history of English from its embryonic stages to the language spoken today in England and America. The present volume spans the period up to A.D. 1154, the year inaugurating the Plantagenet era in England and the year of the last events to be recorded in the annals of the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle.
