In this thoroughly revised 2nd edition, David Childs gives a detailed account of political, social and economic developments since 1919, including the impact of the Second World War, Britain's often neglected last days as an Empire- India, Palestine, Kenya, Cyprus and elsewhere are covered, necessary background for an understanding of Britain today.
The decline of the Conservatives and the Blair experience are also covered at length, and a sketch of Ireland from the Free State to today's prosperous Republic is included. Biographical materials and interviews enliven the text.
Mention is made of the discussion on decline at various points in British history, but Childs concludes that although Britain faces very serious problems, its people are better off than ever before in terms of prosperity and personal freedom.
