Books By Author Keith Laybourn

Battle for the Roads of Britain by Keith Laybourn Battle for the Roads of Britain, Hardback (July 2015)

Policing in Britain was changed fundamentally by the rapid emergence of the automobile at the beginning of the twentieth century. This book seeks to examine how the police reacted to this challenge and moved to segregate the motorist from the pedestrian in an attempt to eliminate the 'road holocaust' that ensued.

Policing in England and Wales, 1918-39 by Keith Laybourn Policing in England and Wales, 1918-39, Hardback (April 2011)

An examination of the modernization of the English and Welsh police during the interwar years, focusing upon the increasing professionalization of the police, the Federation, forensic work and the growth of traffic policing. The authors challenge the established viewpoint by arguing that this period saw significant changes in policing.

Britain's First Labour Government by Keith Laybourn Britain's First Labour Government, Hardback (October 2006)

This volume is the first major account for nearly fifty years to critically re-assess Labour's first period in office in terms of domestic, foreign and imperial policy. It draws on a wide range of private papers and official sources and reconstructs the history of this forgotten government in the broader social and political context of the 1920s.
