Brian Harrison

New Oxford History of England

  • Covers the period from the consensus politics of the 1970s through the Thatcher revolution, to the end of the Thatcher government in 1990
  • Wide-ranging yet impressively detailed - covering everything from international relations to the family
  • Focuses not just upon the politicians but upon the choices made by the people themselves - on the environment, social structure and attitudes, race relations, family patterns, economic framework, and cultural attitudes
