SELECT BIBLIOGRAPHY

This section is intended to make a selection from the works used in compiling this book to introduce the reader to further study. It is not in any way intended as an exhaustive bibliography of books available on twentieth-century Britain.


GENERAL WORKS

1914-45

The best overall work is still A.J.P. Taylor English History 1914-1945 (Oxford 1965). Also most lucid are L.C.B. Seaman Post-Victorian Britain 1902-1951 (London 1966) and W.N. Medlicott Contemporary England 1914-1964 (London 1967, 1978 edition). More recent is M. Beloff Wars and Welfare: Britain 1914-1945 (London 1984). With roots firmly in the earlier period, but not entirely justifying the promise of its title is R. Rhodes James The British Revolution: British politics 1880-1939 (London 1978). There are several excellent detailed studies of the inter-war period. The classic account is provided in C.L. Mowat Britain between the Wars 1918-1940 (London 1955, 1964 edition). More recent-and interpretative-are G. Peele and C. Cook (eds) The Politics of Reappraisal 1918-1939 (London 1975); A. Thorpe Britain in the 1930s: The Deceptive Decade (Oxford 1992); and R. Pearce Britain: Domestic politics 1918-39 (London 1992).


1945-95

There are fewer general books on the period since 1945. Among the most informative are C.J. Bartlett A History of Postwar Britain 1945-74 (London 1977); D. Childs Britain Since 1945: A political history (London 1992); and P. Adelman Britain: Domestic Politics 1939-64 (London 1994). The theme of consensus politics since 1945 is covered in D. Dutton British Politics Since 1945: The Rise and Fall of Consensus (Oxford 1991) and D. Kavanagh and P. Morris Consensus Politics from Attlee to Thatcher (Oxford 1989). More detailed
