The myth of consensus : new views on British history, 1945-64( Book )

14 editions published between 1996 and 2001 in English and held by 256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This groundbreaking collection of essays challenges the notion that early postwar Britain was characterised by a consensus between the major political parties arising out of the experiences of the wartime Coalition government. It brings together for the first time the views of the revisionist historians who have been working on newly released archival material over the past decade. What emerges is a new interpretation of early postwar Britain in which fundamental differences of approach characterised Labour and Conservative policies throughout the 1940s and 1950s on issues as varied as the economy, the welfare state, industrial relations and decolonisation. The Myth of Consensus dispels the idea of a golden age of postwar harmony and poses a challenge to orthodox interpretations of the period
Cold War Britain, 1945-1964 : new perspectives by Michael F Hopkins( Book )

18 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book aims to deepen our understanding of Britain's role by both revisiting commonly accepted central issues and revealing under-explored topics and themes during the early Cold War years. Additionally, it examines Britain's response in a wider context: against the backdrop of nineteenth- and early twentieth-century Anglo-Russian antagonism, the domestic political and economic scene, and the UK's particular position in the world after the end of the Second World War."--Jacket

The Windsor dynasty 1910 to the present : 'long to reign over us?'( Book )

6 editions published in 2016 in English and German and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book explores the recreation and subsequent development of the British Monarchy during the twentieth century. Contributors examine the phenomenon of modern monarchy through an exploration of the establishment and the continuing impact of the Windsor dynasty both within Britain and the wider world, to interrogate the reasons for its survival into the twenty-first century. The successes (and failures) of the dynasty and the implications of these for its long-term survival are assessed from the perspectives of constitutional, political, diplomatic and socio-cultural history. Emphasis is placed on the use of symbols and tradition, and their reinvention, and public reactions to their employment by the Windsors, including the evidence provided by opinion polls. Starting with George V, and including darker times such as the challenge of the abdication of Edward VIII, this collection considers how far this reign was a key transition in how the British royal family has perceived itself and its role through examination of the repackaging for mass consumption via the media of a range of state occasions from coronations to funerals, as well as modernization of its relations with the military
