    2. I know that this book is designed for people who don't know much about Britain, and it is meant to be short. Yet I did not find anything interesting as almost all of what is mentioned is known to be before.If you're wondering whether you should read this book or not. It focuses primarily on British politics and foreign policy. Parties triumphs and failures, and wars or periods of economic instability that have contributed to shaping the Britain we know today. There are bits of outlines about art [...]

    3. Brief, to the point and easy to read. Useful introduction for those who know little about 20th Century Britain.

    4. 20th century BritainWWI / WWII till the beginning of the millennium.It is an O.K read it didn't go in depth in those major events, just quick recaps from Britain point of view. Again most was political fights.The difference of events and focus points after reading the whole set of Britain History in VSI from Roman > Anglo-Saxon > Medieval > Tudors > Stuarts > 18th > 19th and now the 20th, were very interesting. It is a good and informative read after all.

    5. for BH7 paperafter a while the exciting inclusivity of Morgan's historical analysis (cultural, intellectual, and social history are periodically paid due attention) starts to seem a little too neat.reciated how he evaluated the relative importance of causal factors even as he went along narrating. it was inextricably linked to the narrative - almost on the level of semantics (to be specific, conjunction).

    6. Very short, that is how I like history books :-).But it was interesting as I don't know much of British history.I especially liked the language. It was a little harder to read than other books I read (English is my second language).
