Praise for previous editions:
One of the most relentlessly brilliant studies of twentieth-century Britain these historians have found a marvellous theme and stuck to it. Theirs is the glory!
Arthur Marwick, History
Well-planned and highly readable . The best account yet of the basic political statistics.
Asa Briggs, The Guardian
The 1930s created their own legend. Even for those who did not live through them, the wasted years are still haunted by the spectres of mass unemployment, dole queues and the means test, as well as by appeasement and the rise of fascism.
Today the problems of the 1930s are back in the news, with financial collapse and mass unemployment once again on the rise. In this celebrated book, John Stevenson and Chris Cook set about questioning the social and political myths of the devils decade. They also examine, in a new afterword, the parallels between the slump of the 1930s and the crunch of the 21st century, exploring issues that have become as pressing today as they were over seventy years ago.
