The Strange Death of Liberal England
The first UK edition, 1936
First UK edition, first printing hardback bound in the original burgundy cloth. 22.5 × 14.5cm, 420pp.
This is a now classic account of the dramatic upheaval and political change that overwhelmed England in the period 1910–1914. In addition to providing an account of the end of the House of Lords' absolute veto over legislation (as a result of the Lords' intransigence on the issue of Irish Home Rule), the book chronicles the sudden rise to power and influence of the women's suffrage movement, the upsurge in working-class militancy, and the bitterly fought Irish question.
A very good copy. There is some bumping to the corners and light fading to the spine and boards edges. There is a neat previous owner's name to the ffep. The pages are clean bar a few small and inoffensive pencil ticks to the margins and the inner binding is secure.
