Hope and Glory : Britain 1900-2000, Paperback Book

Hope and Glory : Britain 1900-2000 Paperback


Peter Clarke brilliantly challenges the commonly held view of Britain in the twentieth century as a nation in decline.

Adopting a wide perspective, he examines the political. social and economic changes that transformed Britain.

He looks at how jobs and prices, food and shelter, and education and welfare, shaped society and explores such areas as architecture, sport and popular culture.

Embracing a century of national experience, Hope and Glory superbly conveys the diverse aspects of three generations who lived through unparalleled change.
