Abstract:

In the momentous period -- barely 30 years -- covered by this systematic reference/guide, the Edwardian world was transformed unrecognisably, through war, technological progress and social change, into the Nuclear Age.

Andrew Thorpe''s superb contribution to the Companions series illuminates all this and much else. It will be indispensable to anyone interested in the history and poli.
