"Hope and Glory is an examination of the political, social and economic changes that transformed Britain throughout the twentieth century - considering how issues such as jobs and prices, food and shelter, and education and welfare have shaped the society we live in." For this second edition, Peter Clarke has brought his study right up to date, covering Britain from the fall of Thatcher to the rise of Blair's New Labour, the nation's role in the EU, and the books, films and music that have captured the spirit of the times. Embracing a century of national experience, Hope and Glory conveys the diverse aspects of all the generations who lived through this era of unparalleled change.
