Recensie(s)

?Ellis Wasson?s Sources and Debates in Modern British History is an unusually well chosen and wide angling collection of major primary sources, which will prove of great value to undergraduates and graduate students alike who are studying modern British history. This collection makes available valuable primary source material about the great events and trends which shaped modern Britain. It is also notable for the wide range and even handedness of the material selected, a tribute to Dr. Wasson?s editorial skills.? ? Bill Rubinstein, Aberyswyth University 'This is a collection of documents of immense richness from a wide variety of sources: parliamentary debates, official reports, cartoons, novels, high intellects, among others. They stretch from the 18th century to the present, from Adam Smith to Mrs. Thatcher. Dealing with state and society, workers and women, culture and empire, each short document is succinctly introduced. Every chapter concludes with invaluable bibliographies reflecting the most important current historiographical debates. Through a close study of these extremely well-selected documents, students will be able to come to a thorough knowledge and understanding of the compelling story of Britain since 1714, its rise to being the most powerful country in the world, and its subsequent decline.' ? Peter Stansky, Stanford University 'Sources and Debates in Modern British History is an excellent way to introduce undergraduates to primary sources. The editorial material shows students how these historical figures were in conversation with each other, while the questions for discussion encourage students to analyze the documents individually and in groups. I highly recommend this book for undergraduates.' ? Carol Engelhardt Herringer, Wright State University
