About the Book

This second edition of Working with Sources: Case Studies in Twentieth-Century History has been revised throughout to bring it into line with current AS and A2 requirements. Three completely new case studies have been added and a brief historiographical guide has been included in every case study, with comments on recent publications and current controversies.

In Twentieth Century British History: A Teaching Resource Book, William Simpson expertly divides the subject into seven case studies which cover seven key topics on this period in British history. Each case study includes:

  • an introduction to the topic, designed for the teacher, explaining the key developments and issues of the period
  • an extensive set of sources
  • sample questions that provide effective practice for all students.

Important exam topics covered are:

  • Britain's decision to go to war in 1914
  • votes for women
  • Britain and Ireland, 1912–1922
  • the changing fortunes of the Liberal and Labour Parties
  • the General Strike, 1926
  • Britain in the 1930s: depression and recovery
  • British foreign policy in the 1930s.

Invaluable as a photocopiable teaching aid, Twentieth Century British History: A Teaching Resource Book is an indispensable addition to all AS and A2 Level studies of this period in British history.
