Summary "This book offers a new evaluation of the political role of the Church of England in inter-war Britain. It argues that, at a time of crises such as the General Strike of 1926, the Prayer Book controversy of 1927-8, the Abdication Crisis of 1936 and the rise of Hitler, religion remained central to English political thought and debate. Anglican thinkers like Archbishop William Temple offered a theory and rhetoric of national community and the welfare state (a term which Temple himself invented) which had a wide appeal as an antidote to class consciousness and Nazism, and Anglican writers also played a key role in the articulation of inter-war ideas of Englishness."--Jacket.
