Twenty Years On: Views and Reviews of Modern Britain
Peter Stansky is the Frances and Charles Field Professor of History, Emeritus, at Stanford University. He was educated at Yale University, at King's College, Cambridge, and at Harvard University. In numerous books, articles, and reviews, he has commented extensively on Britain in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
In Twenty Years On, Peter Stansky discusses aspects of modern England and its past. What has continually fascinated him is how England copes with change. Although as prone to violence and disruption as any other developed nation, it likes to think of itself as calm and peaceful, a country village. Yet beneath the surface, there is great turmoil, as so many English detective stories testify. Beginning with an account of becoming a historian, Stansky, drawing on his writings of the last twenty years, dwells on those areas of English life that he’s made his own, particularly William Morris, the Bloomsbury Group, and George Orwell. In these essays, he skillfully interweaves culture, art, politics, and society. As a successor to his earlier collection, From William Morris to Sergeant Pepper (1998), Twenty Years On contains brilliant examinations of important aspects of modern England. Though Twenty Years On is Stansky’s most recent work, it represents a lifetime of passion and expertise.
Students (18+), scholars, and enthusiasts of British history
Book cover type
Dimensions: 6x9 inches Page count: 260 Peter Stansky is a retired professor and is publishing this book purely to have it exist. The design should reflect the conventions of edited scholarly/academic volumes. He wants a clean, simple design that clearly shows that Twenty Years On is a companion/follow-up to his earlier anthology, From William Morris to Sergeant Pepper (cover attached at end of brief).
What to avoid
Avoid images of people and places. The only imagery Peter is interested in is a background pattern, similar to his previous anthology (cover attached at end of brief).
