Description

From the Romantic age to the twenty-first century, The Routledge Dictionary of Modern British History is an essential guide to 250 years of history that have seen ‘this sceptr’d isle’ rise, fall and rise again as a major world power.

A colourful, highly readable text, The Routledge Dictionary of Modern British History covers:

  • Prime Ministers, from William Pitt to Winston Churchill and Tony Blair
  • protest movements, from Chartism to CND
  • 'the Troubles' and the journey towards a fragile peace in Northern Ireland
  • military conflict from the Crimea to Iraq
  • historic turning points from the Great Reform Act to the Poll Tax riots.

An important and user-friendly resource, this comprehensive reference is ideal for A-Level students and first year undergraduates, as well as anyone interested in the history of the United Kingdom.
