Britons incorporated into their understandings of their political selves the meanings attached to shellshock, especially the imagery that informed the view of the traumatized psyche as shattered." "The political force of emotions must be appreciated if we are to grasp the political history of Britain in the 1920s, a decade whose historians have failed to come to grips with the extraordinary violence visited upon those regarded at the time as 'un-English'. Shellshocked Britons turned to certain political actions to repair the collective psyche: the passage of the Aliens' Act of 1919; the race riots of 1919; the Amritsar massacre in 1919; the reprisals against the Irish in 1919-21; the General Strike of 1926; and the debates over the bill to enfranchise women over the age of 30 in 1927 and the Igbo Women's War of 1929."--BOOK JACKET." ;
