Harlow, CM20 2JE, United Kingdom 1997 Pictorial Softcover First Thus Very Good 8vo-over 7?"-9?" tall. "The era of the two World Wars was a period of major transition in Britain, ... as elsewhere. It is often depicted in negative terms: the country struggling under the burdens of an unsustainable world role abroad, while undermined by depression and social division at home. In this striking contribution to the new Longman Economic and Social History of Britain, however, Peter Dewey finds a much more positive pattern in the wealth of evidence he lays before us. " THis book has 377 pages. The previous owner's name has been 'markered' to the inside front cover. The text contains NO internal markings whatsoever. Read more Show Less

Overview

This is an account of how the daily lives of ordinary peoples were changed, profoundly and permanently, by these three momentous decades 1914-1945. Often depicted in negative terms Peter Dewey finds a much more positive pattern in the wealth of evidence he lays before us. His is a story of economic achievement, and the emergence of a new sense of social community in the nation, rather than a saga of disenchantment and decline.
