Ever since the 1930s, stories about "Britain in the thirties" have been numerous, contradictory, and much-contested. It was the decade of mass unemployment, hunger marches, and the drift toward war; it was the first era of mass consumption, suburbia, art-deco nightclubs, and capitalism's crisis--or was it its' renewal? The authors argue that none of these narratives represent the "real" thirties but that the ever-changing constructions of the decade have reflected the conflicts and concerns of the world that came afterward.
