How the UK's MP's (and our) votes stacked up 1939-45,
This review is from: The Road To 1945: British Politics and the Second World War Revised Edition (Paperback)
To what extent was democracy preserved in the workings of Britain's government during the Second World War ? If the regular canvassing of public opinion, and the chicanery of opposing party politics and independent mavericks are reliable indicators, then "not too bad" would seem to be the answer of this book. The chapters of the book chronicle the stages of co-operation and competition of parliamentarians through the late `30s to 1945, and how their electoral support influenced and was influenced by the military and welfare systems of the UK.
If the contents of the book had not lived up to the title claimed on the cover, I would have said as much in this review. Its approach is as impartial, comprehensive, reflective and occasionally droll as the average reader on this topic could want.
