Rewriting Britain’s History

Two world wars, the fall of an empire and the rise of digital globalism; Britain endured a rollercoaster 20th century. David Edgerton’s intriguing and controversial new analysis of the period The Rise and Fall of the British Nation, which he discusses today, argues that far from being an island of stability in an otherwise turbulent Europe, Britain was only a truly successful nation from the 1940s until the 1970s. Chaired by Andrew Franklin.
