This text book should give an objective view point but judge for yourself from the following quotes and note:

School Governing Bodies are expected to prevent political bias in any subject.......

"On the Falklands, it states “Margaret Thatcher rose magnificently to the challenge… It was vital that aggression be defeated for the sake of British self-respect and the rule of law in the world … It was a simple case of right and wrong.” (p160)

On Northern Ireland: “The Maze was in every respect a model prison, confirming to all aspects of the charter of human rights yet the IRA denounced is as a ‘British death camp’. This was total nonsense, but the power of propaganda convinced many of the Catholic community in both the Irish Republic and within the Irish community in the USA that this was the scene of a modern atrocity When Bobby Sands starved himself to death in May 1981, there was outrage, yet Thatcher was rightly unmoved. It was self-inflicted and totally unjustified by any objective criteria, but it took political courage to say so and accept other deaths. Once again there was a display of courage and determination on the prime minister’s part but one that was not popular in liberal circles.” (p172)

This follows from a section on Thatcher’s first government titled “setting the country to rights” (p153) and comes before a section on how the defeat of the miners was “probably necessary to the modernisation of the economy.” (p169).

This book was a life saver for my second history unit. It has excellent exam practise, the text is informative and interesting, and it has everything there and it's easy to find anything you need. I got 100/100 for this unit in history and I owe it at least half to this book.

I used this in 2009 for my AS Level module on British History (Edexcel). It has plenty of sources which is very useful for the exam.

Pretty much all of what you need for the course. Great focus on sources, which are likely to come up in the exam!

Bought this for my son to help him revise the topic. It seems to be useful, although it is not really a revision guide, but was recommended by his teachers. Let's hope it brings the results he needs.
