Modern England 1901–1970 is a comprehensive bibliography of all printed books, articles and standard texts on England up to 1970. While England herself is emphasised, there is adequate attention paid to Ireland, Scotland, the Commonwealth and the colonies. All aspects of the period are included save literature per se and local history is restricted in its relevance. This handbook will serve as a useful guide to a wide public: to scholars, to teachers at all levels, to advanced students, and to the general reader interested in examining the period in some depth.
