The 1930s - remembered as the decade of dole queues and hunger marches, mass unemployment, the means test, and the rise of fascism - also saw the development of new industries, the growth of comfortable suburbia, and rising standards of living for many. The authors look behind the legends for an objective - and timely - reassessment, as Britain again struggles with the economic and spiritual ills of recession, depression and unemployment.
