9780140276015: This Sceptred Isle: Twentieth Century (BBC)

Written to accompany the award-winning BBC Radio 4 series, this readable history looks back on the extraordinary events in Britain of the 20th century. The turbulent 20th century, the "fastest moving century of all", has seen a whirlwind of change in medicine, travel, communications and social equality, which has transformed the lives of ordinary people. We have witnessed two world wars, women's emancipation, the end of colonial rule, the indelible impact of the Thatcher years and the recent explosion of technology and the mass media. "This Sceptred Isle: Twentieth Century" is interesting reading for anyone wanting to find out more about the Britain of the last few generations.
