Synopsis

Documentary evidence from the early 20th Century.

With greater emphasis on documentary work at A level, students need access to a wider range of documents than ever before. This documentary reader contains nearly 500 extracts from key documents on the political, social and diplomatic history of Britain. This book draws the reader directly into the policy debates of the period, at the same time as developing the critical analysis of historical evidence.

This volume brings together a broad range of material including parliamentary debates, extracts from a wide variety of newspapers, magazines, public records, diaries and memoirs, cartoons, interviews and advertisements.

These have been culled from public and private archives over a period of two years in a research project by the Institute of Contemporary British History, funded by the Leverhulme Trust.

The result is that this book Institute of Contemporary British History - Britain in The Twentieth Century forms a valuable 'A' level sourcebook.

The Publisher

The Institute for Contemporary British History was founded in 1986 by Professor Peter Hennessy and Dr Anthony Seldon out of a concern that the recent past was being neglected as a field of historical study in British schools and universities.
