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.


W.O. Simpson has produced one of the best history source books to have appeared.

An extremely well laid out and comprehensive set of sources ... Questions are well thought out, carefully related to specific skills.
