Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The last century has been a tumultuous one for the culture and politics of Britain. Kenneth Morgan's Twentieth-Century Britain is a crisp analysis of the forces of consensus and conflict that have existed in Britain since the First World War. Using a wide variety of sources, including the records of political parties and recently released documents from Britain's Public Records Office, Kenneth Morgan covers the full scope of Britain's modern history while drawing thought-provoking comparisons with the post-war history of other nations. This penetrating analysis by a leading twentieth-century historian makes for fantastic reading for anyone interested in the development of modern Britain.

Synopsis:

This brief history of 20th-century Britain examines the forces of consensus and of conflict in this period of British history. Throughout, cultural and artistic themes are woven into the analysis, along with the distinct national experiences of Scotland, Wales and Ireland.
