Summary
In his kaleidoscopic account of one of the greatest periods in British history, Michael Paterson describes the main figures, key events, and popular movements that made up the crucible from which our modern world emerged. From the Imperial wars far from home to the changing nature of work, the innovations in the role of women, the development of mass media, and the popularization of sport, Paterson investigates the claims that this was a Golden Age. -Cover
