The Strange Death of Liberal England
This is a classic account, first published in 1935, of the dramatic upheaval and political change that overwhelmed England in the period 1910-1914. In addition to providing an account of the end of the House of Lords' absolute veto over legislation (as a result of the Lords' intransigence on the issue of Irish Home Rule), the book chronicles the sudden rise to power and influence of the women's suffrage movement, the upsurge in working-class militancy, and the bitterly fought Irish question.
