This is an excellent little volume which covers the domestic politics of the interwar years in an overview rather than in great detail. It gives the main issues, the main players and the main events. My reading of it was not for any exam, more for a general understanding of the period, but I would say it gives an excellent grounding, a starting point, for any exam candidate. I certainly derived a clear idea of the structure of those extraordinary years, and where I needed greater detail I went elsewhere.
All in all, this is a well written and well structured little volume; thoroughly recommended.
'Domestic Politics 1918-'39' is a very good text suitable for A Level students studying this period. It is a well documented account of the inter war years. It offers essay titles and suggested essay plans, evidence based questions, hints on note taking from the various chapters and overviews of the major developments. The information is put simply in language that students of this age can understand! Also worthy of mention is his book 'Britain; Industrial Relations and the Economy, 1900-'39.' Both texts have proved to be useful teaching tools, although students who expect to achieve higher grades at this level should be encouraged to unertake further additional reading to supplement this book.
I was given this book by my sixth form history department for F961 Option B Domestic Problems 1918-'51. Although the book does not cover the entire period, the parts of the course it does cover (Fall of Llyoyd George, Baldwin, First and Second Labour Governments ,the General Strike and the National Government) are covered in depth and more then enough to answer any question in the exam.
