The Strange Death of Liberal England (Paperback)George Dangerfield (author)
- Not available
This is a classic account, first published in 1935, of the dramatic upheaval and political change that overwhelmed England in the period 1910-1914. Few books of history retain their relevance and vitality after more than sixty years. The Strange Death of Liberal England is one of the most important books of the English past, a prime example that history can be abiding literature. As a portrait of England enmeshed in the turbulence of new movements, which often led to violence against the pieties of Liberal England-until it was overwhelmed by the greatest violence of all, World War I-this extraordinary book has continued to exert a powerful influence on the way historians have observed early twentieth-century England.
