The Labour governments of 1945-51 are among the most important and controversial in modern British history, and have been the focus of extensive research over the last fifteen years. In this study, Robert Pearce makes the results of this research available in a concise and accessible form, whilst encouraging students to formulate their own interpretations. He looks at the main political personalities of the period, sets their work in the context of Labour history since 1900, and examines their domestic, foreign and imperial achievements.


`Robert Pearce combines a readable narrative text with a clear and up-to-date analysis of the arguments surrounding Attlee's transformation of post-war Britain.' - Times Educational Supplement
