  1. If you d like to get up to date on recent British history don t buy this book Although the title suggests otherwise, Morgan ends his history of Britain in 1989 That having been said, if you want to read all about the history of Britain between 1945 and 1989, The People s Peace is a good starting point.As can always be expected of history textbooks, you would need to read and reread each chapter carefully to grasp the complex network of political players, parties and institutions at work in post [...]


  2. Fluid, neutral and interesting but for someone interested in the economic history of the country this could be a disappointment The figures for employment, debt or trade that helped define policies are served plain without enough details of the problems that arose at the time The book is essentially a political history from the view of each prime minister in the post war period till 1989 It reads like biographies woven together with changing political climate Although neither the title nor the [...]


  3. The book is essentially one about Britain in itself and not the British Empire so you d expect to have a lot of information regarding the post WWII history of mainly England and to an extent Scotland, Ireland Northern Ireland and Wales The book focuses on the economic and political history, and is strongest on the writings regarding 1970s and 1980s The side that it s lacking is on the socio cultural history of Britain Still, it is a very detailed book and a good introduction to people who want t [...]


  4. Very good review of the history of post war Britain Not too Anglocentric the author is Welsh, after all , though this is not really a history from a British perspective, I feel Largely driven by political and economic narratives, it does nonetheless pay a bit than lip service to cultural and social developments The major problem is that this is a book which has been extended as time has progressed the first part is stronger than the second.


  5. My qualm is that it is unorganized It might be chronological, but that hurts when discussing events and themes I would prefer a thematic arrangement.It also focuses excessively on politics That is satisfactory, but there needs to be on social and cultural features of society.
