20th Century Britain : Economic, Cultural and Social Change, Paperback

20th Century Britain : Economic, Cultural and Social Change Paperback

Edited by Francesca Carnevali, Julie Marie Strange


Written by leading international scholars, Twentieth Century Britain investigates key moments, themes and identities in the past century.

Engaging with cutting-edge research and debate, the essays in the volume combine discussion of the major issues currently preoccupying historians of the twentieth century with clear guidance on new directions in the theories and methodologies of modern British social, cultural and economic history.

Divided into three, the first section of the book addresses key concepts historians use to think about the century, notably, class, gender and national identity. Organised chronologically, the book then explores topical thematic issues, such as multicultural Britain, religion and citizenship.

Representing changes in the field, some chapters represent more recent fields of historical inquiry, such as modernity and sexuality.
