Quel est le sujet du livre "A Concise History of Britain, 1707–1975"


This volume provides a concise, illustrated history of Great Britain over nearly three centuries since the union with Scotland in 1707.

The general theme is the interaction of state and society--specifically the interplay of parliament and the electorate. The author argues that conservative politics prevailed largely in a deeply conservative society, and that reactionary causes generally obtained more support than radical campaigns.

    • Another title in this highly successful series
    • Illuminates the key question of British history - is Britain truly a 'conservative' nation
    • Contains three centuries of history in 200 pages with provocative illustrations and many student features
