British Isles Since 1945 by Kathleen Burk
Book DescriptionSince 1945 Great Britain has gone through many changes: the loss of an empire, economic decline and resurgence, entry into Europe, evolution into a multicultural society, and devolution, to name only the more obvious. In this book, six distinguished historians each take a theme - politics, international relations, high, middle , and low culture, social and economic policies, the nature of civil society, and Ireland - and set out the fundamental nature and development of each. These are set within the wider context of the Cold War, and its impact both internationally and domestically; of the impact on politics, economics and foreign policy of the decline of the pound and the attempts to arrest this; and finally, of the growing impact of Europe.

America's close bond with Great Britain seems inevitable, given the shared language and heritage. But as distinguished historian Burk shows, that close international relationship had been forged only recently, preceded by several centuries of hostility and conflict.
