About this book


This book is essential reading for anyone studying A level History or Sociology, British Politics, the British Constitution, or British Studies. It is also extremely interesting and valuable reading for anyone who wants to understand how Britain developed after the second world war to how, and what, it is now. It treats history as enjoyment, and takes no knowledge for granted. All events and ideas are explained in ordinary language, and quotations from contemporary newspapers give a lively sense of the atmosphere of the recent past. The book covers political events, economics and social movements, charting the dynamic changes occurring in British society since 1960.
