"This is a useful general history and an invaluable work of reference." Irish Democrat
"There are many positive aspects to this book. Above all, it is extremely well written. It also draws upon the author's extensive and detailed knowledge of the twentieth century ... Marwick's material on Britian during both wars is impressive. His treatment of cultural and literary issues is impeccable ... The last chapter, 'The Nineties, Nasty, then Nice' is well drawn and assesses the emergence, achievements and failures of 'New Labour, New Britain' ... Marwick has produced a book which must be one of the first ports of call for any student seeking a background knowledge of the issues and events of British twentieth-century history." History
"... a narrative of high quality, marked by erudition, apposite quotations and economy of words ... Students will undoubtedly benefit from its clarity and range..." Contemporary British History
