Synopsis

Twentieth Century British History A Teaching Resource Book by William Simpson

This second edition of Working with Sources: Case Studies in Twentieth-Century History has been revised throughout to bring it into line with current AS and A2 requirements. Three completely new case studies have been added and a brief historiographical guide has been included in every case study, with comments on recent publications and current controversies. In Twentieth Century British History: A Teaching Resource Book, William Simpson expertly divides the subject into seven case studies which cover seven key topics on this period in British history. Each case study includes: * an introduction to the topic, designed for the teacher, explaining the key developments and issues of the period * an extensive set of sources * sample questions that provide effective practice for all students. Important exam topics covered are: * Britain's decision to go to war in 1914 * votes for women * Britain and Ireland, 1912-1922 * the changing fortunes of the Liberal and Labour Parties * the General Strike, 1926 * Britain in the 1930s: depression and recovery * British foreign policy in the 1930s. Invaluable as a photocopiable teaching aid, Twentieth Century British History: A Teaching Resource Book is an indispensable addition to all AS and A2 Level studies of this period in British history.
