Thursday 10 June, Monthly
Meeting: log on from 9.30; the
meeting will begin at 10.00am: David Edgerton: The
Rise and Fall of the British Nation: a Twentieth
Century History. David will present a new view
of twentieth-century British history, one which
makes better sense of the past, and to some extent
the present, than conventional views. Most British
histories are concerned with the rise and fall of
the welfare state, and also the decline (and
occasionally later supposed rise) of the economy.
More recently some historians have wanted to see
Empire as the key theme in British history. Edgerton
rejects all these approaches as partial and often
misleading. For details, see the What's On page here.
