Explore Our Selection of Books & DVDs on Britain's Modern Era

 
 

The world had become a very different place by 1920. Following the end of the Great War (no one guessed that it would one day be called World War I) and the ravages of the "Spanish Flu" (which claimed millions more lives around the world), many sought to abolish the old order and build a newer, better way to live. Here you can read about new inventions, new ways of thinking, and that strange and fascinating new creature known as the flapper, all of which marked the 1920s as the first truly modern era in Britain. But here too is the other side of the coin, so often seen in dramas like Downton Abbey—that dogged determination to hold onto the prestige of royalty, the pageant of tradition, and all of the civilized manners that made England so English.
