This new edition thoroughly revises Britain: Industrial Relations and the Economy, but also adds substantially to the first edition. There is a wide-ranging and yet detailed account of the General Strike of 1926, assessing responsibility for the conflict, explaining why it was so short-lived and examining its effects. There is also an analysis of British economic fortunes during the period. Now, for the first time, there is coverage of social issues - including the impact of war on society, standards of living, class, leisure and the changing position of women. It shows the years 1900-39 to be a period rich in incident and variety, and of profound historical importance and interest. The updated study guides provide a firm basis for answering differentiated, source-based and extended-writing questions.
