A Concise History of Britain, 1707-1975 (Cambridge Concise Histories) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This volume provides a concise, illustrated history of Great Britain over nearly three centuries since the union with Scotland in 1707. The general theme is the interaction of state and society--specifically the interplay of parliament and the electorate. The author argues that conservative politics prevailed largely in a deeply conservative society, and that reactionary causes generally obtained more support than radical campaigns.

Synopsis:

A concise, illustrated history of Great Britain over the past three centuries which explains the political and social trends that have shaped modern Britain.
