'It provides, amongst other attributes, a brief look at some of the major legislation, stating the objectives and for this it is a most valuable book. It provides a lightning guide to political history. For a seventeenth and eighteenth century historian, Speck gives some inspired insights into twentieth century history ... this is very useful book and again Cambridge University Press are to be congratulated in making the book in paperback and hardback simultaneously.' Allan Fletcher, Open History
'Professor Speck writes clearly and coherently so that the books will afford both a useful introduction for the lay reader seeking to understand the evolution of Britain today and a valuable corrective to specialists ... a commendably concise contribution to one-volume histories.' Teaching History
'An excellent work that offers both a clear political narrative and more general reflections on particular features of socio-economic development ... Authoritative as well as concise.' Archives
