Modern Britain Since 1906 by Keith Laybourn

Book Description

Based on a wide range of primary and secondary sources - parliamentary debates, public speeches, official papers, press reports, journal and magazine articles, memoirs, and works on history and politics - this reader addresses the momentous changes which the 20th century has brought to British life. The introductions provide historiography, and serve as a students' guide for reading, use of sources, and summary of the major themes of the period. The major themes cover political, social, cultural and economic history, and include political realignment - the rise of Labour, the decline of the Liberals, Conservative dominance, and the failure of minority parties - the expansion of the Welfare State and its problems, British industrial and economic decline, and sea-change in British culture, including the problems of racial conflict.

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, Paperback (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.
