    Offering information and argument in equal measure, this A-Z of articles by two leading historians covers the period from 1900 and, in the words Garnett and Weight, focuses on 'those individuals, events and trends that seem to us to have played a significant role in making Britain the place it is today'. From Agriculture to the Falklands War, George Orwell to the Winter of Discontent, the entries present a consistent line of argument with a refreshing disrespect for old orthodoxies, while providing the essential facts.
