Default Books for British History

Assalam-o-alaikum!

I would suggest you to follow the following 2 books for British History:

1. British History by THOMAS (only found with Old-book sellers)
2. Modern British History by NORMAN LOWE.

These 2 books are very comprehensive for the 2 papers of British History.
No need to go for any 3rd option.

ALLAH HAFIZ!

Default British history rocks

British hostory is the subjest which is still more scoring subject then other history subjects , Tauseef haider (css 2004 2nd postion holder) got 152 marks in this subject and he still advise me to go for this subject.and his notes are really helpfull for me .

now regarding books the members had given right book but i will add some of them :

British History At a Glance BY Sheikh MOHD Qayyum.

and British Hostory by V.D Mahajan.

both are good book and offcource encarta would helps a lot.

Thank you very much for sharing it Sir you are absolutely right that British hostory is the subjest which is still more scoring subject then other history subjects
The books the you mention are good & right books but i will suggest that History of England by Wood, is better then British History by V.D Mahajan for the biggners and those never studied this subject coz i think V.D Mahajan is little bit confusing.If anyone read this book and crame it then i am sure that he/she can score 120 + in this subject without consulting any other book and you can confirm it from Mr.Tauseef Haider if possible for you.
Sir can you share Tauseef haider's notes on this fourm with us .
My best wishes are with all of you and once again thank you.

Default yeh v.d mahajan in little bid confusing ...

yes you are right v.d mahajan is little bid confusing for beginners British history at a glance if perfect because of headings and easy text. but i like indian writers more , thats why one Tausif's one subject was geography so always insisted on some indian writers , and some english writers.

well for sharing notes on this forum is little bid difficult for me because these are about more then 400 pages.

well keep going the 20 marks objective is really good and number gaining and please all guys remind the date of births of all the PM;s and kings and famous foreign ministers that will really help you .

bye.

Default Dilemma

hey all..!
yaar...i'm in kindofa fix here in selecting b/w islamic history or british history, in my first attempt (2006) i went for IH and secured 128 marks.But i think it was largely due to luck bcoz i found the syllabus too much and prepared only selected topics and luckily they proved to be enuff for the papers.British history is an entirely new field of study for me, i dont know abt the marks prospects and ne good books available but the syllabus appears to be within sanity..!
Kindly advise me in this regard
Thx a million and best of luck!

Assalam-o-alaikum!

I am a bit late in replying but still if someone is confused abt selecting among the History subects, he/she shall find this post helpful!

British History, Europoean History and the US History are usually more scoring than the Indo-Pak His. The reason is that Indo-Pak is usually opted by a large number of candidates....Pakistan Affairs overlaps Indo-Pak (paper II).
As CSS is a competitive exam, so the examiner is not just interested in correct answers to the given questions, rather he compares the answers of all the candidates and marks are awarded after such a comparison. The Candidates follow the same couple of books which are commonly available in the market.....therefore, the material in their minds is almost the same.
A very few candidates get high scores in Indo-Pak coz they provide somewhat different material.....comparatively better !!!

British and Other Histories are opted by lesser number of candidates....books bhi buhat saari mil jaati hain and each book is better than the other....coz they are written by foreign authors/historians.
So comparatively marks better aa jaatay hain.
One other factor is k Indo-Pak ka syllabus ziyada hai as compared to other History subjects.

Still, the choice is urz !




The books for British History:

1. History of England by P.C. Thomas (Now available in the market....coz of demand it is being republished)
2. Modern British History by Norman Lowe

These two books are sufficient for the papers....but still if someone is interested in gaining extra knowledge + a grip on the subject, the following books can be consulted:
1. British History I and II by Southgate
2. British History by Sheikh Qayyum (Caravan has published the new edition)

V.D. Mahajan has copied P.C. Thomas...... still P.C. Thomas' is more detailaled !


ALLAH HAFIZ!
