Modern British History is a comprehensive, thought-provoking survey of the events, people, and themes that make the British who they are, written by two of the country’s leading scholars. In 200 essays, covering topics as diverse as pornography and the poll tax, the Blitz and New Labour, the authors explore the interwoven culture, society, politics, and economics of the recent past. Bombarded by information as never before, we all need to appreciate the extent to which seemingly disparate events interconnect. This essential A–Z guide offers a consistent line of argument with a refreshing disrespect for old orthodoxies. Read separately, its entries are a mine of useful information; taken together, they form a vivid and compelling picture of Britain at the start of the 21st century.
