This book, while breaking the information down into easy to digest sections, has some faults.
Firstly, it is not sufficiently detailed. There is little hard evidence for the A level student to utilise.
Also, it sometimes has glaring errors (eg. it cites 1988 as the year the Berlin Wall fell and the Cold War ended).
Finally, it is significantly biased towards the Labour view. Its perspective as is about as saccharine on the liberals as it is vicious on Margaret Thatcher, to whom it always refers as 'Mrs Thatcher', though every other non-titled politician doesn't receive this entitling.
I write this as a Lib Dem voter, yet I couldn't bear this level of lazy, patronising 'history'.
