This final volume in The Oxford History of England chronicles the period 1914-1945 - three decades largely overshadowed by war and mass unemployment. It was a period that saw at home the formation of a national government, the only genuine incidence of three-party politics, the fruition of campaigns for trades union recognition, women's suffrage, and Irish independence, and abroad withdrawal from the Gold Standard and involvement in collective security.
