DESCRIPTION

This course will be a social, political and cultural exploration of the ways in which Britain was made (and unmade) as a nation between the Reform Act 1832 and the end of Margaret Thatcher's period as Prime Minister in 1990. An important theme will be how class, gender and ethnicity divided and united the British people. In the context of Britain winning and losing its international and European pre-eminence, we will probe debates about the nature of 'decline'. We will explore the extent to which issues such as class differences, rapid urbanisation, world wars, loss of empire, devolution proposals, a flagging economy, the welfare state, racial conflict, consumerism, and cultural change contributed to Britain's 'decline', yet did not result in the collapse of the social and political order.
