"Thought-provoking and illuminating...Overy's study of British culture between the wars is absorbing and unexpectedly moving."
-"The New York Times Book Review"
Original, entertaining, and ever-surprising, "The Twilight Years" tells the story of how an abiding fear of war influenced English life in the aftermath of World War I. Britain had become a laboratory for modern thought and experimentations, from eugenics to Freud's unconscious. And drawing upon these innovative ideas and concepts, intellectuals, politicians, scientists, and artists-among them Arnold Toynbee, Aldous Huxley, and H.G. Wells-grappled with a creeping fear that the West was staring down the end of civilization. "The Twilight Years" speaks to the frightening power of ideas in a rapidly changing world.
