Summary
The story of Britain - and the world - in the first half of the twentieth century, as seen from the perspective of the world's most famous debating society. A vivid, sometimes piquant, picture of a Britain that is now passing from living memory - and a powerful reminder of the ways in which the past really is a foreign country. --
