    While painstaking in its search for the truth, this brilliant history of postwar Britain acknowledges the role of psychodrama in the life of a nation. Drawing on newly declassified documents, and with a whip-sharp turn of phrase energizing every page, Hennessy examines the perceived reduction of Britain's place in the world and its remaining influence to explain the choices made by prime ministers from Attlee to Cameron.
