'This book has been essential to my study and it contains a comprehensive history of Britain from 1945-2007, outlining clearly the economic, foreign and social policies of each significant period (e.g. 1951-64, '64-79 etc), which is brilliant for creating essay plans and for general revision.' Amazon reviewer As a teacher of Edexcel A level modern British History this is the book we have been waiting for. Amazon reviewer This is an essential book for anyone studying this period. Everything is well explained and nothing missed from the period in question. The book is also easy to understand and unlike some text books is not boring to read. Amazon reviewer
