The New Higher History series offers a full-colour, topic-based approach to the revised Higher History syllabus. Covering all of the main issues within each topic area, this series includes investigative techniques, use of evidence and a variety of activities to enable students to develop the necessary skills to tackle both essay-based and source-based questions successfully.

This book provides comprehensive coverage of the essay-based topics Britain & Scotland 1851-1951 and Germany 1815-1939. The sections on Britain include the growth of democratic institutions in Britain, from the extension of the franchise, votes for women and the social welfare reforms of the early twentieth century to the birth of the welfare state. The German sections of the book trace the growth of German Nationalism, the difficulties in creating a united Germany and unification, and go on to consider the rise of the Nazis and the Nazis in power.
