Présentation de l'éditeur

Peter Clarke brilliantly challenges the commonly held view of Britain in the twentieth century as a nation in decline. Adopting a wide perspective, he examines the political. social and economic changes that transformed Britain. He looks at how jobs and prices, food and shelter, and education and welfare, shaped society and explores such areas as architecture, sport and popular culture. Embracing a century of national experience, Hope and Glory superbly conveys the diverse aspects of three generations who lived through unparalleled change.

Peter Clarke is Professor of Modern British History and Master of Trinity Hall College, Cambridge. He has written several major books on aspects of British political history in the late nineteenth and twentieth centuries, including The Keynesian Revolution in the Making 1924-1936 and A Question of Leadership.

Format: Broché
Hope and glory de Peter Clarke est véritablement un monument de l'histoire anglosaxonne. Par son style à la fois simple -toujours appréciable pour les Français que nous sommes - et remarquablement alerte, Peter Clarke fait revivre les moments déterminants de ce XXème siècle pour la Grande Bretagne. Tour à tour, les agitations des crises militaires mondiales, des crises économiques, coloniales rythment le récit, les heures sombres font naitre les jours plus cléments du Welfare State, l'espoir nait de gloire alors que se dessinent en toile de fond les grands acteurs de cette période tel Churchill mais aussi les anonymes et leur vie quotidienne. Un livre incontournable donc.

Conventional , but very useful. 14 février 2008
Par C. E. R. Mendonça - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Contrary to title, this is still very much a conventional political History of England, developments in Scotland and Irelend receiving the barest of mentions and only in connection with English affairs. It's the usual politics first approach, with some snippets of information about leading literary figures, cultural fads and the like. But the information offered is solid, clear and broaches upon all relevant issues. Therefore, a first-class historical handbook, if not very daring in its approach of the subject.

a bit much 12 février 2010
Par George Aubrey - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Hope and Glory is a bit much; it delves too much in the personalities of the miriad characters and chases many rabbits down a hole. The detail is excessive to the point of tediousness. That is not to say there is not much useful information and insight to be gained from the book; but it has be be extracted from a morass of less useful and arcane material. The author has a great mastery of the English language, but this PhD found himself reaching for a dictionary far too often. I would recommend it to those who are willing to do some "hard, deep plowing" for serious study only.

Progress or Decline is partly a matter of what criteria you select 10 avril 2011
Par C. Griffith - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
Hope and Glory is a largely political history of Britain in the twentieth century. It does have significant portions on the arts, social trends such as the growth of women's paid employment outside the household, and on the economy. I wish to emphasize that my rating is a function of reading the Kindle edition which has a remarkable number of typographical errors, some of which are serious enough so that I had difficulty in figuring out what was meant. Otherwise I enjoyed the book, first written in 1994 but with an updated second edition (which is what I read) covering through the early 21st century.

The author seeks to answer the question of whether or not Britain can be said to have declined in the twentieth century. His answer seems to be that it depends what you mean by decline, and that anyway he thinks some of the decisions that may have contributed to a decline in some sense were justifiable. Britain declined in the sense that at the end of the twentieth century it was no longer Top Nation; its relative political and economic significance were less than it was at the start of the twentieth century. This relative decline was most marked in a political sense, as the United States already had a larger economy (equal roughly to the sum of the gross domestic products of Britain, France and Germany) at the start of the twentieth century. However, individual Britons lived much longer, were much less likely to watch their kids die, and were much wealthier at the end of the twentieth century than at its start. Deciding to continue the war against Germany after the fall of France meant selling off Britain's overseas assets, distorting the economy to focus on weapons production, required a dependence on the United States for finance, and made the loss of the empire inevitable. But coexistence with Hitler hardly seems a probable long-term possibility, and the dependence on the United States was less disasterous than subservience to Hitler. I found the book to be well written.

I earlier published this review at Goodreads.com.

Most Obtuse History book EVER! 23 mai 2013
Par Cnmn - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Used for my British History Class, great teacher who picked the wrong book based upon some scholarly reviews..and it was too late to order a different set from our college bookstore.. ...You cannot get any clear picture of what happened in a straightforward way... thick obtuse overly analytical method of delivery, impossible to look up a subject or historical figure and find out what policies were of historical figures...Horrible book, most of my class failed the final based on this book and I am an A student. I resent the fact that info was given in a gossipy manner as though we knew all the basic facts already...and looking up info in this book is like getting your toe nails pulled out slowly while under a deadline. Burning this book would not be retribution enough...although I will certainly give it a go........
A Straightforward Survey 30 mai 2011

This is one of the best surveys of British history. There is not as much as one would hope on social history, but the political and military history is first rate and well-informed.
