English History, 1914-1945

Գրքի շապիկի երեսը
Oxford University Press, 1965 - 708 էջ
This book chronicles three decades largely overshadowed by war and mass unemployment. It was a period that saw in England the formation of a national government, the only genuine incidence of three-party politics, the fruition of campaigns for trades union recognition, women's suffrage, and Irish independence, and abroad withdrawal from the Gold Standard and involvement in collective security. Written in Taylor's customary provocative style, this is historical writing at its best. -- From https://books.google.com (April 20, 2018).
