With stimulating analyses ofsocial and economic developments as well as domestic and foreign policy, Ensor'saccount serves as a superb introduction to the period it covers and offersinsight into the world of the 1930s in which it was written.

From Our Editors

The date at which this volume ends, the outbreak of the European War, is the latest for which there is enough documentary evidence to write English history scientifically.When the guns of the Franco-Prussian war first thundered in earnest on 4 August 1870 a new epoch began, although Europe at the time did not know it. At midnight of the same day just forty-four years later the sands of Great Britain's ultimatum to Germany ran out; and with them the epoch ended. It is the task of the present volume to trace the history of England during these forty-four years.
