This popular work provides an in-depth historical background to issues of contemporary concern, tracing developments over the past two and a half centuries. It promotes accessibility by adopting a thematic approach, with each theme treated chronologically. Major themes are chosen partly by their importance to an understanding of the past and partly by their relevance to students of contemporary Britain - rather than by imposing current fashions in historical study on the past. Thoroughly revised, the third edition of Modern Britain reviews and brings up to date the content to take account of developments since 1997 and reconsiders emphases and interpretations in light of more recent scholarship. It incorporates new currents in historical writing on matters such as the language of class, the position of women, and the revolution worked by the Internet and mobile technologies. Modern Britain is vital reading for students of history and the social and political sciences.A Social History 1750-2010 Edward Royle ... the a#39;olda#39; working class of skilled and unskilled manual workers, and only 28 had a background in trade union bureaucracy, compared with the ... in the business category: just 8 per cent (20 individuals) for Labour compared with 40 per cent (125 individuals) for the Conservatives.
