This book deals well with all the key issues in twentieth century Britain and provides excellent signposts for further reading. The chapters on economic policy during the interwar years by Dudley Baines are particularly good and present economics in a user friendly manner. It also reaches out to explain the broader implications of the interwar economy and in particular its ramifications on Britain's restricted and cautious foreign policy. This book is aimed at A-Level readers but serves well on my degree course for background and detailed introductions. Each chapter concludes with a comprehensive further reading list and the book's layout is neat and well structured. Well worth buying to supplement other core textbooks.
