The period between the two World Wars saw the emergence of authoritarian and totalitarian regimes in most European countries, and the development of powerful communist and fascist movements in most others. The book examines the reasons why such movements did not flourish in Britain.

Andrew Thorpe is Senior Lecturer in History at the University of Exeter.
