The Cause of Nowadays and the End of History? School History and the Centenary of the First World War
McCulloch, Gary
FORUM: for promoting 3-19 comprehensive education, v55 n3 p473-483 2013

The British coalition Conservative-Liberal government has aligned itself with the centenary commemorations of the First World War, while the war as social and political history may be in danger of being overshadowed by celebration and its profound and enduring implications therefore not fully understood.
