Making no assumptions, it looks at the real person in the cold light of his actions, and uncovers a man of contradictions... more...

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 73.95

    This is an account of how the daily lives of ordinary peoples were changed, profoundly and permanently, by these three momentous decades 1914-1945.

His is a story of economic achievement, and the emergence of a new sense of social... more...
