Christopher Tugendhat takes readers on a journey through Britain as told through seminal books of the twentieth century; from Lord of the Flies to A Room of One's Own, to Heart of Darkness. Exploring the experiences, attitudes and prejudices of the previous century and how they've shaped modern Britain, we gain a unique insight into the politics, social changes and psyche of a nation undergoing enormous transitions within itself and the world at large.

Reviews for A History of Britain Through Books: 1900 - 1964

'Tugendhat's choices are always pertinent and thought-provoking. He guides us through a vivid and absorbing examination of 20th Century Britain, showing the seeds of a new age taking root in the soil of the old.' - Alastair Mabbott, Sunday Herald; 'The effect is to capture history as it unfolded while highlighting the prescience and prejudices of the period.' -- Fiona Capp, Sydney Morning Herald
