The Labour Governments of 1945-51 are among the most controversial and important in modern British history, and have been the focus of extensive research over the past 15 years. In this study of the period, Robert Pearce males the results of this research available in a concise and accessible form, and encourages students of the time to formulate their own interpretations. He examines the main personalities of the period, sets their work in the context of Labour history since 1900, and explores their foreign and domestic achievements. This volume in theLancaster Pamphletsseries provides an authoritative introduction to the topic, brings central themes and problems into focus, incorporates both traditional and revisionist approaches, and uses the most recent research to stimulate critical thought and interpretation.
