About this book


An original study of a major change in the political thought of modern Britain, arguing that the period between 1956 and 1968 saw a seminal change in political thinking which created the framework of today's politics. A republican tradition of active citizenship, community and democracy was developed within the New Left and the radical Liberals around Jo Grimond. The Right, whose republican version of a property-owners democracy was developed by Michael Oakeshott and Enoch Powell, completed the new political framework.
