Críticas:

'The book is lively, readable and engaging . . . vivid character studies and colourful vignettes, some of cinematic brilliance . . . Marr has an enviable ability to unravel complex issues and expound them in simple terms. He possesses a sharp radical edge and often goes to the heart of the matter . . . Marr can also be genuinely funny . . . an acute eye for details that puts the past in perspective . . . Marr's analyses are lucid . . . He sums up historical debates adeptly'
--Guardian

Reseña del editor:

In The Making of Modern Britain, Andrew Marr paints a fascinating portrait of life in Britain during the first half of the twentieth century as the country recovered from the grand wreckage of the British Empire. Between the death of Queen Victoria and the end of the Second World War, the nation was shaken by war and peace. The two wars were the worst we had ever known and the episodes of peace among the most turbulent and surprising. As the political forum moved from Edwardian smoking rooms to an increasingly democratic Westminster, the people of Britain experimented with extreme ideas as they struggled to answer the question `How should we live?' Socialism? Fascism? Feminism? Meanwhile, fads such as eugenics, vegetarianism and nudism were gripping the nation, while the popularity of the music hall soared. It was also a time that witnessed the birth of the media as we know it today and the beginnings of the welfare state. Beyond trenches, flappers and Spitfires, this is a story of strange cults and economic madness, of revolutionaries and heroic inventors, sexual experiments and raucous stage heroines. From organic food to drugs, nightclubs and celebrities to package holidays, crooked bankers to sleazy politicians, the echoes of today's Britain ring from almost every page.

Descripción Pan Macmillan. HC. Condición: New. The period covered is from the death of Queen Victoria to the end of the Second World War. Britain became increasingly democratic. People experimented with new fads (vegetarianism, eugenics, nudism). The music hall form of entertainment was incredibly popular. Package holidays began and the welfare state emerged. There were crooked bankers and sleazy politicians. The people drew together under Churchill and 'stupidly, unimaginatively and unreasonably fought on'. An interesting history of change.
