First published as part of the Oxford Illustrated History of Britain, this Very Short Introduction is no. 24 in the Very Short Introductions series, and is the tenth and last in the Very Short Introductions: British History series.

Keneth O. Morgan's Very Short Introduction to twentieth-century Britain examines the forces of consensus and of conflictin twentieth-century Britain. The account covers the trauma of the First World War and the social divisions of the twenties; fierce domestic and foreign policy debates in the thirties; the impact of the Second World War for domestic transformation, popular culture and the loss of empire; the transition from the turmoil of the seventies to the aftermath of Thatcherism and advent of New Labour. Profound tensions that shook the United Kingdom are juxtaposed against equally deep forces for stability, cohesion, and a sense of historic identity.
