History, like the present, is always changing.

Scholarship on the history of the British Isles is currently experiencing a golden age. The breakdown of modernism and the eclipse of both the Marxist tradition and the 'Whig interpretation' that sees all history as progress, combined with the trajectories of nationalism in Ireland, Scotland and Wales, have generated unprecedented intellectual activity.

In the final volume of this history of Britian, Robert Skidelsky takes on the question: how successful was Britiain in the twentieth century. Taking in the loss of the British Empire, the 'ungovernable' 1970s, Britain's involvement in two world wars and unprecedented social change, this is a comprehensive and fascinating look at Britain's twentieth century.
