The Northern Question: A History of a Divided Country

Available

Description

A history of the UK's regional inequalities, and why they matter

Differences between England's North and South continue to shape national politics, from attitudes to Brexit and the electoral collapse of Labour's 'Red Wall' to Whitehall's experimentation with regional pandemic lockdowns. Why is this fault line such a persistent feature of the English landscape?

The Northern Question is a history of England seen in the unfamiliar light of a northern perspective. While London is the capital and the centre for trade and finance, the proclaimed leader of the nation, northern England has always seemed like a different country. In the nineteenth century its industrializing society appeared set to bring a political revolution down upon Westminster and the City. Tom Hazeldine recounts how subsequent governments put finance before manufacturing, London ahead of the regions, and austerity before reconstruction.
