Simon Schama is one of the world’s pre-eminent historians. Currently based at Columba University, Schama has authored a variety of books and BBC documentaries.
The latter works are stunning for their high-quality historical narratives: presented with a captivating dry British sense of humor mixed with whimsical appeal. Schama’s BBC documentaries include: Power of Art, A History of Britain, and The American Future – A History.
But you don’t need to take my word for it: why not take a look for yourself…?
