The twilight years : the paradox of Britain between the wars

Обложка: 

This book is an exploration of British society in the 1920s and 1930s while it wrestled sometimes fatalistically, sometimes with undisguised relish, with the menace of a new Dark Age. The result is, I hope, an unexpected window on to the social, cultural and intellectual world of inter-war Britain. In some small way it may explain why students in the secure Cambridge of the late 1930s could contemplate the death of civilization in a country whose political and social system had proved almost impervious to the savage violence and upheavals that scarred the history of the rest of Europe, and from which Hobsbawm himself was an exile. These were viewed as the twilight years, prelude to a looming darkness.
