This book includes:

* every Prime Minister from Pitt the Younger to Tony Blair

* protest movements from Chartism to CND

* military conflict from the French Revolutionary Wars to Iraq

* and milestones from the Act of Union to the Northern Ireland peace process

Synopsis:

From the Romantic age to the twenty-first century, The Routledge Dictionary of Modern British History is an essential guide to 250 years of history that have seen ?this sceptr?d isle? rise, fall and rise again as a major world power.

A colourful, highly readable text, The Routledge Dictionary of Modern British History covers:

  • Prime Ministers, from William Pitt to Winston Churchill and Tony Blair
