From the Back Cover:

Designed for the student and general reader, this compact and accessible reference work provides all the essential facts and figures about major aspects of modern British history from the death of Queen Anne to the end of the 1990s.

Now well established as the leading reference work for students of modern Britain, this latest edition wil be warmly welcomed. The Longman Handbook of Modern British History has been extended to include a fully-revised bibliography (relecting the wealth of newly published material in recent years), the new statistics on social and economic history and an expanded glossary of terms.

Completely up-to-date, the book contains new material on such recent developments as the Scottish Parliament and Welsh Assembly, House of Lords reform and developments in the European Union. The political chronologies have beeen revised to include the electoral defeat of John Major, the record of the New Labour government and its success in winning a second term in office.
'It certainly deserves to meet an enthusiastic response from students, terachers, historians and lovers of reference books, since it is everything that Longman claim it to be'
(Times Educational Supplement of the 1st editon)

This highly-successful handbook provides a wealth of varied data within the confines of a single volume, and is now an even more user-friendly reference tool for students, teachers and the general reader alike.
