About the Book

Drawing on the expertise of nearly two hundred prominent British, American, and Commonwealth scholars, this encyclopedia offers a comprehensive and up-to-date assessment of twentieth-century Britain that will prove invaluable to students as well as general readers. The biographical and topical articles, each accompanied by a brief bibliography, cover a wide array of subjects from politics to the arts. Issues of gender and the impact of the two World Wars receive special emphasis. In contrast to the political focus of other guides, Twentieth-Century Britain gives comparable attention to literature, music, social currents, and family life, and also includes a chronology of significant events and a guide to further research.
About the Author: The Editor: Fred M. Leventhal, who received his B.A. and his Ph.D. from Harvard, is Professor of British History at Boston University. Among his many publications are Respectable Radical: George Howell and Victorian Working-Class Politics (1971), The Last Dissenter: H. N. Brailsford and His World (1985), and Arthur Henderson (1989). He is co-editor of the journal Twentieth Century British History and former President of the North American Conference on British Studies.
