Publisher's Synopsis

'An epic new history . . . a work of epic scholarship, breathtaking range, and piercing originality' Daily Express

'An astonishing achievement of narrative history . . . I think the word is "magisterial".' Spectator

'Excellent, thorough, detailed and combatively argued.' Sunday Times


Sing As We Go
is an astonishingly ambitious overview of the political, social and cultural history of the country from 1919 to 1939.

It explores and explains the politics of the period, and puts such moments of national turmoil as the General Strike of 1926 and the Abdication Crisis of 1936 under the microscope. It offers pen portraits of the era's most significant figures. It traces the changing face of Britain as cars made their first mass appearance, the suburbs sprawled, and radio and cinema became the means of mass entertainment. And it probes the deep divisions that split the nation: between the haves and have-nots, between warring ideological factions, and between those who promoted accommodation with fascism in Europe and those who bitterly opposed it.
'Magisterial . . . an extraordinary achievement.' Literary Review

'A masterful portrayal of political, social and cultural upheaval between the wars.' Daily Mail
