This is the first of three "synoptic volumes" which will introduce a long series of books comprising the "civil history" of the United Kingdom's war effort. (The other two will deal with production and social policy.) Written by professional historians with access to official sources, the present volume tells the story of the rest of Britain's wartime economic problems and policies. Until the more detailed volumes appear, this will be the best source on most of the problems with which it deals.
