The first edition of this work interpreted what has been known as the "Devil's Decade" in a more optimistic light, balancing the evidence of new industries, emerging middle class affluence and a rising standard of living alongside mass unemployment, poverty and poor health. This edition draws on research that has taken place since the appearance of the first publication, without diluting the author's original evidence or conclusions. It includes a revised introduction, with a summary guide to new work and evidence on the period, and, where necessary, insertions of additional material to the main text have been made. An updated and extended bibliography has also been included.

Product Description:

The 1930s - remembered as the decade of dole queues and hunger marches, mass unemployment, the means test, and the rise of fascism - also saw the development of new industries, the growth of comfortable suburbia, and rising standards of living for many. The authors look behind the legends for an objective - and timely - reassessment, as Britain again struggles with the economic and spiritual ills of recession, depression and unemployment.

Review:

 'One of the most relentlessly brilliant studies of twentieth-century Britain yet publishedxxx; these young historians have found a marvellous theme and stuck to it. Theirs is the glory!  History
