Britain since 1945 the people's peace by Kenneth O Morgan ( )
9 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and held by 937 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Britain since 1945: The People's Peace is the first comprehensive study by a professional historian of British history from 1945 to the present day. It examines the transformation of post-war Britain from the planning enthusiasm of 1945 to the rise of New Labour. Its themes include the troubles of the British economy; public criticism of the legitimacy of the state and its instruments of authority; the co-existence of growing personal prosperity with widespread social inequality; and the debates aroused by decolonization, and Britain's relationship to the Commonwealth, the US and Europe. Changes in cultural life, from the puritanical 'austerity' of the 1940's, through the 'permissiveness' of the 1960s, to the tensions and achievements of recent years are also charted. Using a wide variety of sources, including the records of political parties and the most recently released documents from the Public Records Office, Kenneth Morgan brings the story right up to date and draws comparisons with the post-war history of other nations. This penetrating analysis by a leading twentieth-century historian will prove invaluable to anyone interested in the development of the Britain of today

16 editions published between 2000 and 2005 in English and held by 907 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Kenneth O. Morgan's Very Short Introduction to twentieth-century Britain examines the forces of consensus and of conflict in twentieth-century Britain. The account covers the trauma of the First world War and the social divisions of the twenties; fierce domestic and foreign policy debates in the thirties; the impact of the Second World War for domestic transformation, popular culture and the loss of empire; the transition from the turmoil of the seventies to the aftermath of Thatcherism and the advent of New Labour. Profound tensions that shook the United Kingdom are juxtaposed against equally deep forces for stability, cohesion, and a sense of historic identity."--BOOK JACKET

Crime, protest and police in modern British society in honour of David Jones ( )
4 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 645 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This collection of essays offers much new, original and challenging material in the fields of crime, protest and policing. Employing the skills of both the historian and the criminologist, it ranges across rural and urban worlds, presenting both highly localized case studies and the broad sweep of a synoptic survey, and approaching the genre from both a historical and a cultural perspective." "This book raises issues of central concern not only to scholars and academics, but to everyone concerned with crime, justice and order within the complexities of modern society. It does honour to a leading figure in the modern renaissance of Welsh history but also outlines, in its own right, issues that illuminate the tension between individual rights and freedoms on the one hand, and the imperatives of the ordered, policed society on the other."--BOOK JACKET
