The Twentieth century by Robin W Winks( )

99 editions published between 1998 and 2009 in English and held by 2,459 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Here, readers confront the many facets of the imperial experience in the final century of the British Empire, above all the rapid processes of decolonization that began at mid-century. Volume IV attempts to understand the men who managed the empire, their priorities and visions as leaders, and the mechanisms of control which held the empire together. There are chapters on imperial centers of activity, on the geographical periphery of the empire, and on the entirety of its connecting mechanisms, including institutions and the flow of people, money, goods, and services. Contributors also explore the experiences of Britain's imperial subjects in culture, politics, and economics--those experiences which fostered the growth of vibrant, and often new, national identities and movements as well as--ultimately--new nation-states. It concludes with decolonization and the reshaping of the political map of the world

11 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 479 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Af de kritiske emner kan nævnes: hans selvmodsigelser og fordrejning af kendsgerninger, eller ihvertfald variationer over den såkaldte historiske sandhed, og at han syntes at have fremstillet Hitler som en rationel statsmand i modsætning til den almindelige opfattelse. Flere kritikere fremhævede, at han "hvidvaskede" Hitlers politik, at han havde stærk sympati for den engelske eftergivenhedspolitk, og at han måtte have set for overfladisk på de ting man vidste, og som man dog måtte tillægge betydning. Bogen har også et afsnit med forslag til videregående læsning
